Introducing the Best Mazda Models with AWD

January 16th, 2017 by

An all-wheel drive (AWD) drivetrain powers all four wheels of a vehicle through front, rear, and center differentials. For rugged terrain and driving in cities with heavy rainfall or snow, an all-wheel drive vehicle integrates technology, added stability, and maximum safety features into crossover SUVs. Several Mazda models, like the CX-3, CX-5, and the CX-9, offer secure handling all-wheel drive systems to meet the road at affordable rates.

What is Mazda’s i-Activ Predictive AWD?

Under standard conditions, Mazda’s all-wheel drive delivers 98% of the focused power to the front tires. The i-Activ predictive AWD system on Mazda’s CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 models anticipates slips and tire shifts, and then redirects power to the rear wheels before the driver even detects an issue. The i-Activ all-wheel drive reads through an impressive 27 channels of sensor data at about 200 times a second, so you can stay focused on the road ahead of you.

The i-Activ all-wheel drive sensors also detect:

inside and outside temperature
wiper blade power
road incline
off-center movement, left or right
steering wheel effort vs. angle
individual wheel speeds
position of the gas pedal
brake fluid pressure
transmission gear
dynamic stability control activity
oil temperature
According to Bill Howard, of Extreme Tech, Mazda’s all-wheel drive is leagues above other automakers, like Audi, Acura, BMW, Lexus and Mercedes-Benz. This is based on, “the number of sensors looking for slip and the ability, in mid-priced vehicles, to combine the sensor data to sense slip sooner.” That’s a huge advantage – milliseconds more of safety and response at an affordable price.

Mazda’s AWD CX Series Models
Did you know that in 2015, more than 38% of new vehicles bought in the U.S. featured all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive capabilities? Mazda has taken this push for safety to the front of the line with their CX model SUVs, each with powerful handling and luxury features that match their stylish exteriors.
