The Acura's SH-AWD's torque-vectoring does work well, but on a surface with a low coefficient of friction, the Acura will take a moment to send power to the rear unlike the Subaru. Having had two Audi 4.2, a Subaru SVX, two spec.Bs, and an Outback 3.0, I'd say the Acura outshines them all on dry pavement, but not on a slick surface. On snow the Acura is good, but the Subaru and Audi awd systems are my preference. I put sticky summer tires on my 2012 Acura; the result was high cornering limits for such a large, heavy car. The spec.B was more entertaining.
