Which MAZDA Cars are AWD?

Mazda SUV Lineup


Mazda’s compact cars and sedans, including the Mazda6 and Mazda3, have typically only been available with front-wheel drive (FWD), but there are plenty of other models with the Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system like the Mazda CX-3! In fact, just about all Mazda crossovers & SUVs provide AWD as either an available or standard feature, depending on the trim level or package you opt for. Actually, now, the Mazda3 sedan is even available with AWD! Ready to learn more? Read on or contact us at Morrie's Inver Grove Mazda for answers to all of your Mazda-related questions!

What is the i-ACTIV AWD® System?

The i-ACTIV AWD® system is the way Mazda does intelligent all-wheel drive. During inclement weather or over rough roads, this system uses sensors to track road conditions, interpret the information it acquires, and adjust the torque settings so that certain axles get more or less as needed to improve road-holding capabilities. 

In essence, Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® is an advanced active torque split AWD system. The i-ACTIV AWD® system is also paired with the Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System which uses sensors to monitor wheel slips, redirecting torque to the rear wheels as required, and helping maintain or recover control of your vehicle.
