All-wheel drive is a very sought-after feature for SUV shoppers, especially in areas where it snows. Although Portsmouth NH isn’t known for its blizzards, we do see occasional snowfall, making vehicles equipped with AWD very popular. There are a variety of vehicles in Mazda’s lineup that offer Mazda’s available i-ACTIV AWD drivetrain, but is the 2018 Mazda CX-3 one of them? Read on to find out!

What drivetrains are offered on the 2018 Mazda CX-3?
The 2018 Mazda CX-3 comes in three trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. Each trim comes standard with front-wheel drive, but drivers looking for more control on the road are able to opt for the available i-ACTIV® AWD drivetrain. Mazda engineers designed i-ACTIV® AWD to apply torque to each wheel individually, enhancing grip on the road and reducing wheel slip, even in icy or slippery conditions. The system continuously monitors road conditions and makes adjustments in real time to keep the vehicle as safe and stable as possible.
