Mazda Active Torque Split All-Wheel Drive
Seen on: Mazda Mazdaspeed6, CX-7, CX-9
How it works: The Mazda Active Torque Split All-Wheel Drive system's resting state sends 100 percent of torque to the front wheels. However, depending on the vehicle's grip needs, an electromagnetic center differential can divert power to the rear wheel for up to a 50/50 torque split between the front and rear axles. In the case of the Mazdaspeed6, the torque that makes it to the rear axle is once again split between the rear wheels with a grip, increasing limited-slip differential.
