Why You Should Care About Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Even If You Don’t

Mazdas are vehicles made by driving enthusiasts for driving enthusiasts. So if driving matters to you then chances are you’re already in love with Mazda and if you’re already in love with Mazda then you’re already a fan of G-Vectoring Control. But if you’re just shopping around for a new car then you might not know about G-Vectoring Control or worse yet you might not even care. If you don’t care to learn how G-Vectoring Control improves driving dynamics and what that means to you, then there’s one thing you should take away from today’s Mazda research: Mazdas are as fun to drive as they are safe.

In researching Mazdas you may have come across the Jinba Ittai concept. Jinba Ittai is a Japanese term for horse and rider that Mazda uses to conceptualize the ideal relationship between car and driver, meaning the relationship between car and driver should be as attuned as horse and rider. It should be unique and responsive, never just form, never just function, but a perfect blend of refined materials, features, and technologies that work together to enhance dynamics, safety, and fun. Here’s how G-Vectoring Control does its part to improve driving dynamics.

What does G-Vectoring Control do? 

G-Vectoring Control reduces the g force occupants feel while making turns in the car. It improves stability, increases traction and reduces driver workload. The result is a more precise drive which leads to a more fluid ride and a more comfortable driving experience for everyone on board.

How does G-Vectoring Control work?

G-Vectoring Control works by improving steering performance at nearly all speeds and in nearly every condition. This is accomplished by reducing engine torque and shifting the load to the front wheels at the beginning of turning a steering wheel. Then the driver’s steering operation is detected to derive an optimal engine torque, then that torque is ordered to the engine. This improves cornering response and cornering stability as the steering position is maintained, the engine torque recovered, and the load is shifted to the rear wheels.

If you still don’t care about G-Vectoring Control and are just looking for a great car then have this be today’s takeaway: G-Vectoring Control — a revolutionary new technology exclusive to Mazda — is a standard feature in all trim levels for 2017 model year Mazda6 and Mazda3 products. 

Come by our Dublin Mazda dealership for a test drive and do your own comparison — test drive a vehicle without G-Vectoring Control and then test drive a Mazda6, you’ll feel the difference and pretty soon you may start calling yourself a driving enthusiast.
