2021 Mazda CX-5

A common question during the Mazda SUV research process is whether or not the model you want has AWD (all-wheel-drive). Nowadays, AWD isn’t reserved for trucks, jeeps and other off-roading models – many automakers are offering sophisticated AWD systems with their sedan and SUV models too. Mazda offers their own AWD technology called iActiv AWD with Off-Road Traction Assist that optimize driving performance in a variety of road and weather conditions. This technology is available in the new Mazda CX-5 with certain trims having AWD as a standard feature.

What is iActiv AWD?

Like many all-wheel-drive systems, iActiv functions by evenly distributing torque between the front and rear wheels for superior handling, providing the smoothest possible ride and longevity of your tires. iActiv specifically uses a range of sensors that detect both the driving scene and driver intention to calculate the best torque distribution, keeping your tires from slipping in different directions. The iActiv system can detect weather from your use of wipers and temperature controls, steering direction, speed and even brake fluid pressure to paint the picture of your current driving experience and make the necessary adjustments to reduce tire slippage and give you optimal performance. Mazda’s iActive AWD system also helps to free tires that are stuck in sand, deep snow or mud through its Off-Road Traction Assist technology.
