Yes, the 2021 Mazda CX-3 does come standard with Mazda’s All-Wheel Drive technology, i-Activ AWD®. Allow Morrie’s Inver Grove Mazda serving Inver Grove Heights to fill you in on all that i-Activ AWD® and the CX-3 entails!

CX-3 i-Activ AWD®

Not every road around Inver Grove Heights is a smooth one. But with the CX-3, you’ve got i-Activ AWD®. Constantly monitoring vehicle dynamics data, this available AWD system sends torque to the tires with the most grip to help you maintain traction in almost any road condition.

Whether you are on the highway on a dark and rainy night or driving up a snowy mountain road, Mazda’s new-generation all-wheel-drive system is designed to provide safety and comfort with fuel efficiency. Our engineers completely redesigned the system’s hardware and software, and by taking a proactive approach to controlling drive to all four wheels, have developed i-ACTIV AWD®, a fully-autonomous AWD system that combines excellent all-road ability with outstanding fuel economy.

i-ACTIV AWD® is constantly monitoring road conditions in real-time and watching for tiny variations in wheel speed that a driver would never notice. Proactively controlling the distribution of torque, which can range from full front-drive through to full 4-wheel-drive, the system not only provides solid and predictable handling for all-road performance, it makes driving on poor road surfaces more efficient by all but eliminating wasteful tire-slippage.

Using a wide range of sensors to paint a highly accurate picture of the overall driving scene, including road conditions and the driver’s intentions, i-ACTIV continuously calculates and adjusts the amount of torque sent to the rear wheels. This enables secure take-off, acceleration, cornering and braking, without letting the tires slip in any direction—forward, backwards or sideways. The system minimizes torque sent to the rear wheels when on dry road surfaces with good traction. In this state, the car is working almost like a front-wheel-drive vehicle, which contributes to great fuel economy.
