What is the i-ACTIV AWD® System?

No matter if the roads are slick or the weather is getting bad, Mazda wants to keep drivers in control. That’s why the fully autonomous i-Activ AWD® system was crafted. You don’t have to worry about sacrificing the excellent fuel economy ratings Mazda is known for to achieve greater traction and wheel grip. Find out more about this innovative system as well as which models have it with us at Young Mazda today!

How Does i-ACTIV AWD® Work?

The i-Activ AWD® system constantly tracks road conditions and small changes in wheel speeds using a series of sensors to help the system get the information needed to create a picture of the surrounding driving conditions. The system can then make adjustments to the amount of torque allocated to the front and rear axles. This is what makes i-Activ AWD® an active torque split AWD system, and what makes it such a great choice for Bethlehem roads.

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

The Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System also uses a variety of sensors — but for another purpose. These sensors monitor ground speed and front-wheel speed, allowing the system to sense tiny wheel slips that could lead to tire spin. The 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.
