Mazda has announced a new vehicle dynamic system called the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS series to enhance vehicle motion control. While the new technologies won’t be on the market until the upcoming 2017 Mazda6, they will help make the roads a safer place when they do become widely available.
As part of Mazda’s SkyActive technologies, the new vehicle dynamics system is integrated with the transmission, chassis, and engine to bring out the best performance the car can deliver. Using Mazda’s Jinba Ittai – car and driver as one – philosophy, they’ve developed a system that gives Mazda drivers the enthusiast experience they’re looking for.
G-Vectoring Control (GVC) not only enhances the engine’s output but the chassis performance and safety, too. The roads are safer when drivers maintain control and have minimal wheel slip.
The GVC platform is the world’s first system that controls the torque based on the input from the steering wheel. This gives the 2017 Mazda6, and later in the 2017 Mazda3, the ability to control acceleration forces both laterally and longitudinally ensuring each wheel has an optimized load.
Drivers of GVC-equipped vehicles will see benefits at low-speeds in the city, on winding roads, or on highways as the system adapts the vehicle’s engine and suspension responses based on inputs, conditions, and more.
Even in inclement weather, the GVC system will ensure that drivers keep in control of the vehicle. Combining the GVC system with a Skyactiv engine and chassis will give drivers an improved and enjoyable driving experience. Which is what Mazda is about!
You may have to wait to test out the new system, but we’re certain that the 2017 Mazda6 is going to be a hit!
