Mitsubishi Motors is a recognized leader in all-wheel drive engineering. Our Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system offers the stability and traction you need to tackle any driving scenario, including our slippery Canadian winter roads.

Safe Driving for Anyone, Anywhere

Over the years, we have continued to refine our AWD systems through rigorous testing in various driving conditions. From our rally heritage to drivers on the road today, we use our experience to improve our systems and deliver superior vehicles that offer comfort and peace of mind on any road. Super All-Wheel Control, our most advanced AWD system, dramatically improves handling and stability by continuously and seamlessly controlling vehicle movements during accelerating, cornering and braking. The result? Excellent driving performance and added confidence in even the most challenging road conditions.

Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) features multiple drive modes, so you can feel confident in any situation. Available modes vary by model.

Easier starts and more secure cornering on snow-covered roads.


Maximum torque distribution to all four wheels. Use on loose dirt and gravel roads.


Use this mode for quicker response on dry and winding roads.

1 Available feature. Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) adds Active Yaw Control (AYC) to realize the AWC concept at a very high level. While this Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Control System manages the driving forces and braking forces of the four wheels to help realize vehicle behaviour that is faithful to the operation by the driver under a variety of driving conditions, it is not a substitute for careful driving. S-AWC cannot prevent collisions or loss of traction in all conditions. Exercise caution so your full attention is given to vehicle operation in all road conditions.
