  • Smart Brake Support – mitigates severity of collisions by determining risk of accident and automatically applying brakes

The CX-5 with i-ACTIV AWD

The CX-5 has available i-ACTIV AWD, which is the proprietary Mazda AWD system. It differentiates itself from traditional AWD systems with its innovative pre-emptive torque control. The system uses a front-wheel slip-warning detection system that calculates any micro-disparities between ground speed and front wheel speed. When the system detects too large a difference, it instantaneously supplies torque to the rear wheels, making up for the lost grip long before the driver would notice that any slippage even occurred.
