I'm sure he's not saying that -- only that neither engine nor foot braking is going to help in a hydroplaning situation where you don't have any traction to begin with.

It's minimal compared to using the brakes.

Regardless, There is engine braking, I don't know how minimal it is? considering if now you're driving in the lower gears with AWD lock on.

By the way, braking, cornering, & handling, are all about a 4WD, or AWD vehicle doing this all better!

I am pretty sure that the logic used by the Santa Fe for AWD prevents it from engaging when starting from a stationary position with the wheels turned, since this is the one time I get wheel slip until I straighten out the wheel. If it prevents the AWD from engaging here I doubt it allows it to engage much when turning at speed. If it had a true LSD in the center or front or rear it would help to send torque to a slipping wheel in a hard turn, but it doesn't, it has a clutchpack instead that only sends torque when a preset condition is detected by a computer that engages it. I am fine with how the Santa Fe's AWD system works, but I don't think people should read too much into it and think it has some tremendous on the road performance benefit.
