There is something awe-inspiring about a truly engaging driving experience. When the car seems to respond to your input immediately, it is hard to describe the exhilaration that most drivers feel. You don’t have to wait for a luxury car to get that kind of response.

Every car company wants to provide an engaging driving experience, but few companies focus on it like Mazda does. Their entire philosophy is designed around putting the driver first and centering everything around them. This philosophy reaches its apex with the design of the all-wheel drive system in the 2020 Mazda3. It has been refined to an incredible degree.

2020 Mazda3 All-Wheel Drive System

Mazda has been using the I-Activ all-wheel drive system with other vehicles, but this is an improved version for the 2020 Mazda3. It takes in all of the data from the road and uses that to adjust traction and steering power. For example, if the windshield wipers are on, then the car knows it is raining and can adjust accordingly. The system can also adjust the amount of rear torque based on how much weight is on each tire.

The new Mazda3 also takes advantage of a new G-vectoring control system. As the wheels turn, the GVC shifts weight around very subtly to improve grip. This precise control gives the car a more natural behavior. It provides a smoother start when accelerating or coming out of a corner. These systems together will help the Mazda3 feel more natural and responsive when driving.
