What is the Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® System?

No matter where your next adventure may take you – from Route 95 and the Las Vegas Beltway to desert trails – the Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system will deliver peerless performance at every turn. Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® is an intelligent and fully-autonomous all-wheel drive system that made its debut in the 2013 Mazda CX-5. With an innovative design, Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® will promote performance, safety and fuel economy when you get behind the wheel of the 2019 Mazda CX-9.

With the Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system equipped, Mazda CX-5 entries will automatically distribute torque to the front and rear axles in real time. Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® employs a system of sensors that monitor acceleration, steering response, brake pressure, road conditions, steering torque, vehicle speed and engine force to paint a picture of the current driving conditions and driver intentions.

When this data is collected – in mere seconds – the Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system will automatically re-distribute torque to maximize performance. In perfect conditions, i-ACTIV AWD® will distribute torque to the front wheels to provide drivers with impressive fuel-economy numbers. When wheel slip is detected or road conditions deteriorate, the Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system will send more torque to the rear wheels to function in a four-wheel drive role and upgrade traction in milliseconds.
