How Does the Hyundai Kona Know When to Deliver More Power to a Wheel?

All-Wheel-Drive powertrains like that used in the Hyundai Kona are designed to vary the delivery of power to wheels with traction so that a slipping tire does not receive an overabundance of torque like differentials did in the past. The modern all-wheel-drive powertrain is augmented by the in-car computer to analyze slippage and divert power to wheels with traction.

The wheels on a Hyundai Kona are equipped with sensors that send continuous information to the onboard computer about the spin rate. When the computer discovers a variance between two opposing tires, it will send a signal to the differential to send more power to the wheel that is spinning at a lesser rate.
