V6 IMA MID DUALNOTE

Dual-note Driving Control
The aim is to deliver the exhilaration of sporty driving.
The mid-engine rear-drive/front-motor hybrid 4WD layout achieves a sharp, responsive feel. In addition, Honda has installed ATTS
* for smoother, more stable cornering and VSA** to suppress side slip and stabilize upward movements of the body. These two systems work in tandem to control vehicle behavior, resulting in maximum performance from all four tires, with extremely efficient transfer of power to the road and enhanced braking and cornering capabilities.
*Active Torque Transfer System
**Vehicle Stability Assist

•Accelerating during cornering
By providing optimal torque distribution to each of the four wheels, Honda IMA accurately responds to driver inputs and road surface conditions to assure that the car accurately traces the intended drive path.


During normal cornering

•During normal cornering
During normal cornering when the car is not accelerating, the system activates regenerative braking of the front inside motor employing the torque difference between inner and outer wheels. This improves cornering capability and efficiently recoups energy.
