The start of the New Year is a time for bold action, like heading into Liberty Mazda here in Hartford, CT and driving home in a top-of-the-line 2018 Mazda CX-3. This is the time of the year where inclement weather can land quickly and severely, and royally mess up your Monday morning commute.

That’s why you want the Mazda brand’s smart and predictive i-ACTIV AWD® system on your side. It’s always on high alert to keep pace with changing weather and road conditions. When it senses the need, it can adjust power delivery to provide your 2018 Mazda CX-3 with optimal traction before your wheels have a chance to slip.

i-ACTIV AWD® keeps track of throttle input and braking patterns to determine when all-wheel drive may be needed, then it steps in to preemptively optimize torque distribution to help curb traction loss. It also helps stabilize and improve the overall road grip of the Mazda CX-3. If you’re traveling down a winding hill or making a sharp turn, it senses the change in steering effort from things like puddles and loose gravel, and responds by distributing torque more evenly.

It’s not just performance you can count on. Here’s what U.S. News & World Report had to say in their review: “The 2018 Mazda CX-3 ranks near the top of the class because it offers an excellent combination of athletic performance, interior refinement, and good safety scores.” The drivercentric cabin is designed to provide an expansive view of the world around you and the road ahead. Spacious five-passenger seating provides plenty of room for everyone.
