i-ACTIV AWD® is constantly tracking road conditions and small changes in wheel speeds using a variety of sensors to help you monitor your driving conditions no matter which Springfield roads you frequent. The i-ACTIV AWD® system interprets the information from the sensors and can make adjustments to the amount of torque allocated to the front and rear axles. This makes i-ACTIV AWD® an active torque split AWD system, a great choice for Morton drivers and beyond.
The Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System, also using a variety of sensors, monitors ground speed and front-wheel speed, allowing this system to catch small slips that can lead the tire to 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.
Mazda’s compact cars, such as the Mazda3, are offered with front-wheel drive only. i-ACTIV AWD® is available on all of the Mazda SUVs:
2019 Mazda CX-3
2019 Mazda CX-5
2019 Mazda CX-9
