VIDEO: Hyundai HTRAC – Control the Light (short cut)

Here’s a video that will demonstrate how Hyundai’s HTRAC all-wheel drive system works. The vehicle in question is a Hyundai Genesis 3.8 V6 that makes 315 hp and 397 Nm, fitted with the said AWD system.

The first test illustrates the system on wet roads. Here, one can see the wheels slipping quite prominently as the lights indicate. It then regains and adjusts itself accordingly. In the next test, the HTRAC is shown on bumpy roads. The lights show how fast the system reacts to the situation, distributing power to both front and rear wheels.

Finally, carving through corners. The HTRAC system works to apply braking to the inner rear wheel to give better traction. This can be seen as the lights separate from the continuous stream of red. That’s pretty informative, in a sense that one can see it happen in real-time.

In Malaysia, the Hyundai Genesis comes in a rear-wheel drive layout, which means no HTRAC system. Launched in June, the luxurious large sedan is priced at RM388,922, on-the-road without insurance.
