Is the Mazda CX-5 Good in Snow?
Looking to buy or lease a new SUV that offers impressive handling and added peace of mind when driving in the snow? Our Morrie’s Minnetonka Mazda dealer near Minneapolis is proud to offer the new Mazda CX-5, which offers available all-wheel drive and Off-Road Traction Assist to help you and your loved ones stay safe when faced with potentially hazardous weather conditions.
Mazda CX-5 Capability
Weather and road conditions can change in an instant in the Minnetonka and Minneapolis areas, but when your Mazda CX-5 is equipped with available i-Activ AWD®, it will help predict when all-wheel drive is necessary by monitoring factors like outside temperature, throttle input, steering and braking patterns, and even windshield wiper usage. Once the system has determined that all-wheel drive is needed, it will then preemptively optimize power to the wheels, helping maintain or improve traction.
If all-wheel drive isn’t enough to put your mind at ease, the Mazda CX-5 AWD models will also offer Off-Road Traction Assist, which helps optimize torque distribution and traction control to help you traverse uneven terrain.
Thanks in large part to both of these impressive performance features, the 2020 and 2021 Mazda CX-5 earned an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ rating, which should rule out any doubts you had about this model’s safety –– if you had any, that is.
