SKYACTIV VEHICLE DYNAMICS WITH G-VECTORING CONTROL

As a part of Skyactiv Vehicle Dynamics, G-Vectoring Control (GVC) focuses on how g-forces affect driver and passengers to enhance the feeling of Jinba Ittai. Mazda studies the biomechanical relationship between human and vehicle in order to fine-tune the engineering systems and maximize a smooth interaction between them.

Whether cornering or driving in a straight line, fewer steering wheel corrections are needed and fewer g-forces affect driver and passengers. The vehicle behaves more in line with driver expectation, increasing driver confidence and reducing fatigue typically caused by g-forces.

g force thumb

G-VECTORING CONTROL

GVC focuses on how both vehicle and passengers are affected by turns. The moment the driver starts turning the steering wheel, GVC controls engine torque to decelerate g-forces and shifts load onto the front tires to enhance stability.

  • Suspension and steering functions achieve the "driving pleasure of oneness between car and driver"
  • Driving quality has been raised to new levels through improvements to comfort and security

 

i-ACTIV AWD

CONFIDENCE IGNITED BY INTUITION

Mazda's predictive i-Activ AWD is an on-demand system featuring sensors that check road conditions 200 times every second. Built to sense, and respond to these conditions, i-Activ AWD helps to ensure a more confident drive.

driver intent 2019 cx5 ts 1904171435310000

DRIVER INTENT
The i-Activ AWD system uses numerous sensors to determine the driver's intentions. Is the driver intending to accelerate? How sharply is the steering wheel turned? How much pressure is on the brakes? These and other considerations are taken into account, and determine how the system reacts in order to achieve optimum control.

road conditions 2019 cx3 ts 1904171441070000

ROAD CONDITIONS
i-Activ AWD constantly monitors exterior temperature, wiper operation, the amount of torque required to turn the front wheels and the load on the engine. As a result, the system knows if it's snowing or raining, if the road is slippery, if the driver is on a hill or attempting to turn. This enables the i-Activ AWD system to accurately predict when slippage will occur.

slip protection 2019 cx9 ts 1904171444060000

SLIP PROTECTION
i-Activ AWD is designed to send just enough torque to the rear wheels to prevent slippage from occurring. By doing this, it provides the traction associated with all-wheel drive, while minimizing the impact on fuel consumption.

calculation 2019 cx3 ts 1904171434090000

CALCULATION
An ideal split of torque between the front and rear wheels is achieved through the i-Activ AWD command module's innovative 200-times-per-second calculations, allowing for quick and responsive reactions that ensure a better, controlled drive.

response 2019 cx5 ts 1904171439160000

RESPONSE
Direction from the command module lets the i-Activ AWD system apply the required torque to the wheels to deliver an exceptionally stable driving experience with better control over acceleration, turns, breaking and slippage.

mazda efficiency hero

UNCOMPROMISED FUEL EFFICIENCY

i-Activ AWD was designed to deliver exceptional responsiveness and to challenge the convention that an AWD vehicle must be inefficient.  In order to deliver the benefits of AWD and excellent fuel efficiency they set out to reduce the weight of the AWD components and to minimize frictional losses.

friction 2019 cx9 ts 1904171435500000

REDUCING FRICTIONAL LOSSES

Engineers even studied the way the oil moves through the gears in order to enhance the efficiency of the system.
