2021 mazda cx30 at best import dealership in bc canadaThe 2021 Mazda CX-30 features the i-Activ AWD system. This advanced all-wheel drive adjusts power to handle different conditions and minimize fuel use.

The 2021 CX-30 uses sensors to pick up data on a range of variables, including steering angle, acceleration, brake pressure, external temperature, torque, and the revolution of all four tires. The info gets analyzed to determine both surface traction and driver intention. 

The Torque Control System (TCS) allows for an almost instantaneous response to these readings. It calculates the appropriate amount of energy to deliver to the wheels to compensate for slippage. It also constantly transfers some power to the rear axle, even if the vehicle is in FWD mode. This makes for a smooth and immediate transition to AWD.
