Advanced All-Wheel Drive
All-wheel-drive systems are not all created equal, and the Mazda CX-9 has one of the most advanced packages on the road. The i-ACTIV system analyzes 27 channels of data 200 times per second to determine torque distribution to individual wheels. These data bits include outside temperature, wiper position, vehicle incline and steering angle, as well as individual wheel speeds and throttle position. The result is what Mazda calls a predictive all-wheel-drive system, and it certainly proved effective in snow and ice.
