2021 mazda cx5 for sale kelowna bcCrossovers bring together the positive traits of a sedan and the qualities of a larger SUV. Some of these autos succeed in making this combination work, while others do not. With its i-Activ AWD, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 provides both the all-weather performance that drivers expect from a utility vehicle and the nimble handling of a smaller car.

We will take a closer look at how this unique all-wheel-drive system affects the performance of the 2021 Mazda CX-5 Kuro.

Drivetrain: i-Activ AWD (standard)
Fuel economy: 9.8 L/100 km City and 7.9 L/100 km Hwy

All-Wheel-Drive System

Mazda's i-Activ is one of the 2021 CX-5 Kuro's most attractive features. It uses an embedded system with 27 sensors. Each of these take multiple readings from the road. In all, there are 200 measurements per second. 

What does the 2021 Mazda CX-5 Kuro do with this information? It can adjust torque to give more power to a specific axle when needed. These changes can improve traction, reduce slippage, and aid acceleration, cornering, and braking. The 19-inch metallic black alloy wheels with 225/55R19 all-season tires bring even more control and road-gripping qualities.
