Honda Civic 4th Generation
Shuttle

The 4th generation Civic Shuttle built on lessons learnt from the pioneering 3rd generation Shuttle.

Apart from the AWD 1.6i16v powered Shuttle, all Shuttles are in GL spec with the 1.4 16 valve injection engine.

The AWD system provided by Honda is badged as Real Time 4WD and works by detecting slip in the front wheels and transferring some drive bias to the real wheels to assist with traction. When slowing, some bias is is applied to the rear wheels so that drive control is given to all four wheels under engine braking conditions. Rear wheel bias is also adjusted during engine load change conditions, such as hill ascent and decent, to maximise control.
