Is All-Wheel Drive Available on the Mazda 3?

World Car Mazda North

Does the 2020 Mazda 3 have AWD?

When driving in unexpected or hazardous conditions, having the extra assurance of all-wheel drive is essential. AWD is an available drivetrain option on the new 2020 Mazda 3. Front-wheel drive is standard, but you can upgrade to optimal AWD on every Mazda 3 trim level, except for the base model.

The Mazda i-ACTIV AWD all-wheel drive system is available on the 2020 Mazda 3 Sedan Select, Preferred, or the Premium Packages. The predictive AWD monitors weather and road conditions to reduce loss of grip and enable safer driving.

FWD vs. AWD: What Is The Difference?

Front-wheel drive combines all of the parts of the powertrain into one unit. It offers enhanced fuel economy and much more cargo space. FWD gives drivers decent traction in conditions such as snow or rain, but at lesser speeds.

All-wheel drive can manage pretty much any weather conditions. It provides drivers with exceptional grip and confidence, especially on snowy or icy roads. AWD is constantly running, which makes for a smoother ride with better grip.



Is AWD Available on other Mazda Models?

The Mazda i-ACTIV AWD was initially introduced to the Mazda 3 in 2019, and it was available in other vehicles in the Mazda lineup before that. Mazda's all-wheel drive system promotes a more versatile, safer, and smoother driving experience. i-ACTIV all wheel drive is available on these new Mazda models:

2019 CX-3

2020 CX-5

2020 CX-9

2020 CX-30
