What is the i-ACTIV AWD® System?

Mazda wants to keep drivers in control regardless of if the road or weather conditions are less than perfect. 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. Learn more about the i-Activ AWD® system and the vehicles that come equipped with it at Tracy Mazda.

How Does i-ACTIV AWD® Work?

The i-Activ AWD® system uses a series of sensors to constantly track road conditions and small changes in wheel speeds. The system can then take this information to create a picture of the surrounding driving conditions to 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 Stockton 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.
