Mazda drivetrains explained

Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard on most models in the Mazda lineup, and in fact is the default drivetrain on just about any new vehicle anywhere these days. This drivetrain has the front wheels under control with steering and power. From there, you can get Mazda i-ACTIV AWD®. AWD typically sends power to the four corners depending on which wheels need power the most, as certain road conditions and terrain call for adjustments, and that will allow you to have better control. Mazda makes this kind of drivetrain its own by monitoring 27 different sensors more than 200 times per second to consider the speed of each wheel, the engine dynamics, g-forces, the braking systems, steering systems, driver input, outside conditions, and windshield wiper activity. Yes, windshield wiper activity! If you have the wipers on, the vehicle can understand that that likely poses a change in weather and road conditions.
