Mazda will soon be adding new technology to improve handling in its vehicles, known as SkyActiv Vehicle Dynamics, as part of the SkyActiv suite of technologies. The first to be introduced is called G-Vectoring Control, and will soon make its way into the entire Mazda lineup.
The 2017 Mazda6 will be the first Mazda in North America to receive this new tech, and is expected to arrive at dealerships later this year. SkyActiv Vehicle Dynamics was created to provide a better connection between the car and driver by closely integrating control of the engine, transmission, chassis and body.
G-Vectoring Control works by varying engine torque in response to steering inputs for better control of acceleration forces and to optimize the vertical load on each wheel. In simpler terms, the car moves more in line with the driver’s intentions and reduces the need for minor steering corrections, such as when driving straight down a highway.
SkyActiv Vehicle Dynamics give you more confidence when behind the wheel and makes driving more fun, no matter what your driving skill level is. Changing direction is smoother with G-Vectoring Control and ride quality is improved, providing a more comfortable ride for you and your passengers. G-Vectoring Control also improves handling and stability on wet, snowy and unpaved roads.
This incredibly versatile system can be used on any type of vehicle, regardless of size and drive type. Every Mazda, from the compact CX-3 crossover to the feature-packed Mazda6 sedan will have a more dynamic driving experience thanks to SkyActiv Vehicle Dynamics.
