2018 Mazda CX-5 driving

For a number of years, Mazda engineers have been working to optimize performance for driver and passenger needs alike by way of Mazda’s SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. The latest addition to this engineering suite, SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, has been designed to:

  • Optimize steering response for the driver
  • Improve comfort for passengers

Find out how this groundbreaking technology achieves these goals, and experience it near Shelby on a range of new Mazda models at Momentum Mazda in Gastonia, NC.

The Mechanics of G-Vectoring Control

At the heart of the design of SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control is a focus on the driving and passenger experience. The system does this by precisely controlling the delivery of force dependent on driving behavior. When taking a corner, the system is able to:

  • Reduce the delivery of torque and move the load to the front wheels at the beginning of a turn
  • Read the driver’s steering behavior and deliver the correct amount of torque during the middle of a turn
  • Recover torque and send the load to the back wheels at the end of a turn

The end result is a driving experience that feels both more dynamic for the driver via improved cornering response, and more comfortable for everyone in the cabin via improved cornering stability.

The Multi-Faceted Approach to SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY

SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control is just one piece of a larger Mazda strategy of improving performance across their entire lineup. SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is a holistic approach to automotive performance that includes:

  • SKYACTIV®-G and SKYACTIV®-G engines
  • SKYACTIV®-Drive and SKYACTIV®-MT transmissions
  • SKYACTIV®-Body
  • SKYACTIV®-Chassis
