2019 Mazda CX-3 Driving in the Rain

The i-ACTIV AWD® system is Mazda’s new-generation, fully autonomous all-wheel-drive technology. This i-ACTIV AWD® system helps in harsh driving conditions such as a snowstorm in Wilson or traveling in rainy weather. The best part is you don’t have to sacrifice the excellent fuel economy ratings Mazda is known for to achieve greater traction and wheel grip. Learn more about this new Mazda technology as well as which new Mazda models provide it at Medlin Mazda.

How Does i-ACTIV AWD® Work?

While you’re on the road, i-ACTIV AWD® is constantly tracking road conditions and small changes in wheel speeds. Using sensors, road conditions and more are tracked and taken into account. i-ACTIV AWD® interprets the information from the sensors and can make adjustments to the amount of torque allocated to the front and rear axles.

What is the Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System?

The Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System also uses a variety of sensors to monitor ground speed and front-wheel speed, allowing the system to sense tiny wheel slips that could lead to tire spin. Torque Control System works closely with Front-Wheel Slip-Warning and i-ACTIV AWD®. Even in FWD mode, it almost instantaneously transfers a small amount of torque to the rear wheels and helps your vehicle switch to AWD without lag.

Which Models Have Mazda AWD?

Mazda’s compact cars, such as the Mazda3, are offered with front-wheel drive only, but this doesn’t mean you won’t have a controlled and safe drive. i-ACTIV AWD® is available on all of the Mazda SUVs:

2018 Mazda CX-3

  • CX-3 Sport
  • CX-3 Touring
  • CX-3 Grand Touring

2018 Mazda CX-5

  • CX-5 Sport

  • CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve
  • CX-5 Signature

2018 Mazda CX-9
