Safer towing through an advanced 4WD system
The Outlander PHEV has an advanced 4WD system on board called S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control). Having all four wheels being driven whilst towing provides superior stability and safety, especially if road conditions deteriorate during the journey.
Creating towing power even when you’re braking
Kinetic energy is generated naturally as the vehicle brakes. To help you keep your battery charge topped up, the Outlander PHEV makes use of this energy. In other words, the electric motor is using the vehicle's momentum to recover energy that would be otherwise lost to the brake discs as heat.

An onboard system for increased towing safety
TSA increases stability when towing. If vehicle swaying is detected, it automatically controls engine power and the braking force at each wheel to stabilise the vehicle and trailer.
