Acura is looking to Subaru for inspiration for its latest bid at a brand overhaul.

Acura executive Koichi Fukuo told Automotive News, "The key is [all-wheel drive]. As a premium brand, we need something different from the competition."

Many of Acura's current models are available with some form of all-wheel drive, whether it's the basic system offered on the MDX crossover, or variants of its praised Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) available in its TLX and RLX flagship sedan.

Acura's upcoming NSX replacement will feature an advanced SH-AWD system and could serve as a showcase for the technology if the company chooses to pursue it as a centerpiece of its overhaul.

Acura would not be the first premium brand to put all-wheel drive at the center of its product strategy. Audi has found success in marketing its quattro all-wheel drive tech to set itself apart in the ultra-competitive luxury segment.
