Mazda has introduced a range of SKYACTIV Vehicle Dynamics, the new-generation of vehicle motion control technologies, for current models, beginning with the updated Mazda3 (Axela). The foremost new-generation of SKYACTIV Vehicle Dynamics is the G-Vectoring Control (GVC), which will eventually be introduced to current and new-generation models.

As part of the SKYACTIV offerings, the Vehicles Dynamics provide integrated control of the engine, transmission, chassis and body to enhance the car’s “Jinba-ittai” feel; a sense of connectedness between car and driver that distinguishes Mazda vehicles.

The first technology in the SKYACTIV-Vehicle Dynamics is the GVC, which was derived from Mazda’s human-centered development philosophy and the concept of using the engine to enhance chassis performance. It is the world’s first control system to vary engine torque in response to steering inputs in order to provide integrated control of lateral and longitudinal acceleration forces. It is also meant to optimize the vertical load on each wheel for smooth and efficient vehicle motion.

The GVC optimizes the load on each tyre and accentuates the response of the car based on the driver’s driving intuition. This helps to reduce the need for steering corrections, including many that are made unconsciously. The outstanding traction the system provides inspires confidence and makes driving more responsive. Related benefits of the technology include smoother acceleration, reduction of mid-section sway and ensuring a comfortable ride, as well as improving handling and stability in the wets or mixed conditions.

In addition, GVC benefits drivers of all skill levels in a wide range of situations: from low-speed urban commutes to highway driving, winding roads, and even emergency maneuvers. The system’s only requirement is its compatibility with a SKYACTIV engine.
