Thought I'd share a few very interesting videos regarding Mazda's i-Activ AWD system and how it stacks up against the competition.
In this video the CX-3 takes on the Subaru Crosstrek. Mazda Canada did this demo during CX-3 introduction events for Mazda dealership staff in major cities across the country.
In this video a Mazda engineer provides a great explanation of how Mazda's AWD differs from everyone else's. There's a particularly eye-opening part around the 2:00 mark where a Subaru (Forester, I think) and a CX-5 (identical AWD system as CX-3) attempt to climb a snow-covered hill from a dead stop. FYI: later in the video there are shots of tire-spinning CX-3s, but those were 2wd models they used for comparison.
