Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Drive Selection

Drive selection is a system to switch the vehicle's drive mode. When the sport mode is selected, vehicle's response against accelerator operation is enhanced. This provides additional quick acceleration which may be needed to safely make maneuvers such as lane changes, merging onto freeways, or passing other vehicles.

CAUTION Do not use the sport mode when driving on slippery roads such as wet or snow-covered roads. It may cause tire slipping.

NOTE

  • When the sport mode is selected, driving at higher engine speeds increases and it may increase fuel consumption. Mazda recommends that you cancel the sport mode on normal driving.
  • Drive mode cannot be switched in the following conditions:
  • ABS/TCS/DSC is operating
  • The Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) system/cruise control is operating.
  • Steering wheel is being operated abruptly
