HTRAC – Hyundai TRACtion

Hyundai TRACtion (HTRAC) is a traction system developed by Hyundai which splits the power from the engine between the front and rear wheels depending on where it is needed for any given driving situation.

For example, during normal highway cruising power will likely be distributed only to the rear wheels as the additional grip of the front wheels is not required, which cuts down on fuel usage.

Then, if it started raining the vehicle would sense that there is less grip available on the road and would send power to the front wheels as well to give the car better traction.

Things to be aware of:

  • While this particular system is exclusively available on Hyundai vehicles, other manufacturers have their own version of this system called by different names.
