Despite the off road looks, the new 2021 CX-5, like most mid-sized family SUV's of its size is sold mainly as a front wheel drive model both to save money and weight and therefore have better fuel economy and emissions figures. Some customers will always want the added reassurance of a proper 4 wheel drive system though, and Mazda does offer it, but as it takes extra power, it's only available on the 2.2 litre diesel and only in its more powerful 184 horsepower guise. you'll pay extra over the front wheel drive version, but the added traction and peace of mind will be worth it. It's always a good idea to fit winter tyres for really poor driving conditions however, as having a 4 wheel drive system will get you moving off the line better than front wheel drive in the snow, but it will not help you steer, turn corners or brake any better once you're moving so you'll slide into a ditch just as easily with summer tyres!
