Mazda-i-ACTIV awd

What is the i-Activ AWD® System?

The i-Activ AWD® system is Mazda’s new-generation, fully autonomous all-wheel-drive technology. This system is great when you have to brave harsh driving conditions during a snowstorm or if you have to travel in rainy weather. You also 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 unique AWD system, the Mazda vehicles that offer it, and more with us at Findlay Mazda today, then take your favorite model for a test drive!

How Does i-Activ AWD® Work?

The i-Activ AWD® system is constantly tracking road conditions and small changes in wheel speeds using a series of sensors. This way, the system can create a picture of the surrounding driving conditions and interpret the information from the sensors, making adjustments to the amount of torque allocated to the front and rear axles. This is what makes i-Active AWD® an active torque split AWD system. Interested in a model with this feature? Be sure to find out which models have it, then browse our inventory for your favorite.

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

The Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System monitors ground speed and front-wheel speed using a variety of sensors 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. This system is handy on slick Las Vegas roads.
