2015 Honda CR-V shows problems with its AWD system, again! [w/video]

Article by Christian A., on October 24, 2014

After showing how the Porsche Macan fails the moose test, the Swedish magazine Teknikens Varld is back, this time with a problem observed on the all-wheel drive Honda CR-V. No, the Japanese crossover didn’t fail to pass the moose test, but it failed to show it all-wheel drive system works.

This is not the first time the Swedish magazine faces the same problem with the CR-V as they also did this test with the previous CR-V model and after a software update from Honda, the vehicle performed well.

Now, the new model shows the same problems and it is not able to climb uphill when the front wheels have no friction. According to an official response from Honda, its AWD system uses a compact, fuel-efficient rear differential and its design requires certain torque limitation for the device to work effectively in real conditions.

Honda says that in real conditions, there is a certain amount of friction always available for both front and rear wheels. What’s more interesting is that the magazine also did the same test with a Ford Kuga and this model passed the test. Conclusion? The Honda CR-V needs a software update as soon as possible!
