How Does i-ACTIV AWD® Work?

The Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system constantly tracks road conditions and variations in wheel speeds. Through a series of sensors, the system creates a picture of the surrounding driving conditions, and interprets this information, automatically adjusting the torque allocated to the front and rear axles. An active torque split AWD system, i-ACTIV AWD® is the perfect choice for Saipan area roads.

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

The Front-Wheel Slip-Warning Detection System employs an array of sensors to monitor ground speed and front-wheel speed, allowing the system to sense the slightest wheel slippage that could lead to tire spin. The Torque Control System, working along with Front-Wheel Slip-Warning and i-ACTIV AWD®, almost instantaneously transfers a small amount of torque to the rear wheels to help your vehicle switch from FWD to AWD without any lag time.
