Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Drive Selection

Mazda 3 Owners Manual / When Driving / 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.
