Precision All-Wheel Steer™

RLX Precision All-Wheel Steer system

Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS®) is designed to deliver an unprecedented level of handling precision and control. It's the first system that enables the rear wheels to adjust toe angles independently of each other. Working in concert with Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®)12 and the Agile Handling Assist®, P-AWS® helps enhance vehicle stability, maneuverability and control.

  • The rear wheels can pivot as much as 1.8 degrees in the same direction as the front wheels for smooth, stable and quick lane changes.
  • When cornering, the rear wheels angle slightly in the opposite direction from the front wheels (reverse-phase) to help rotate the car into the turn.
  • At low speeds, reverse-phase steering helps the RLX maneuver in tight areas.
  • In high-speed braking, each rear wheel angles inward, increasing braking ability and stability.
