Mazda’s i-ACTIV all-wheel drive takes centre stage

Are you sick of winter already? Sorry to disappoint you, but there’s a lot more snow coming our way. That said, if you happen to own a Mazda vehicle equipped with i-ACTIV all-wheel drive, taking on these harsh conditions is much less stressful.

Early this year, Mazda invited a few members of the automotive press to the inaugural Mazda Ice Academy in Colorado. Our collaborator Vincent Aubé was on hand and we strongly recommend that you read his account. You’ll see that it’s possible to have fun in the snow… even with a roadster like the Mazda MX-5!
