Re­ally does torque the torque

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

Ac­tive Driv­e­line all-wheel drive is avail­able on top-spec mod­els and de­vel­oped by GKN Driv­e­line. The sys­tem de­cou­ples drive to the rear wheels to save fuel dur­ing steady-state driv­ing, but adds clutch packs ei­ther side of the rear diff to proac­tively chan­nel torque to in­di­vid­ual rear wheels and ramp up driv­ing en­gage­ment when you’re on it. It can di­rect up to 100 per­cent of the torque at the rear axle to one rear wheel in 0.1sec. It’s the same kind of hard­ware you’ll find on the Ford Focus RS, which Jaguar bench­marked dur­ing de­vel­op­ment.
