G-Vectoring Control: Safety Through Technology
The headliner of the 2017 Mazda6’s new driver assistance features is Mazda’s all-new G-Vectoring Control system. The first in a series of new-generation vehicle motion control technologies collectively known as SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS, G-Vectoring Control uses the engine to augment the performance of the chassis by varying engine torque in response to steering inputs to provide more integrated control of lateral and longitudinal acceleration forces and optimize the vertical load on each wheel. This creates a smoother, more efficient ride and builds a more harmonious relationship between the Mazda6 and its driver.
Advanced New Driver Assistance Features
The all-new G-Vectoring Control system is only one of many new advanced driver assistance features found within the 2017 Mazda6. Additional features include the lane keep assist system, traffic sign recognition system, full-color heads-up active driving display, rearview camera, Mazda radar cruise control, smart brake support with collision warning, smart city brake support and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
