Most vehicles come standard with a two-wheel drive drivetrain. That can be either the two front wheels or the two rear wheels. With all-wheel drive, though, all wheels receive power, and that brings with it a few benefits. First and most importantly is optimal traction, handling, and control. This is especially useful in the winter months, because the roads will become slippery and extra traction is necessary. All-wheel drive gives you better performance over tight turns and when off-roading as well.

Mazda doesn’t have a large lineup, so it should be easy to remember which models do and do not come with all-wheel drive. While the Mazda3, Mazda6, and MX-5 Miata all have some exceptional performance features, they do not currently come with all-wheel drive options. To get all-wheel drive, you’ll need to choose one of the three SUVs in the mix. The CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 all have i-ACTIV® AWD as an available feature, which is Mazda’s signature all-wheel drive system that can intelligently sense when more or less power is needed for the front or rear wheels.
