For the U.S., Mazda claims the 2.5-L's 186 hp (139 kW) and 186 lb-ft (252 Nm) make it the segment's strongest standard engine. Intelligent “i-ACTIV” AWD is available; Mazda's more muscular turbocharged four rated at 227 hp (169 kW) on 87-RON gasoline is a likely early upgrade. The i-ACTIV AWD system uses 27 different sensors to monitor - 200 times per second - wheel speed, engine dynamics, g-forces, vehicle yaw, driver inputs to the braking and steering, outside temperature and even windshield wiper activity to deliver drive torque to the wheels in any situation.
