Our breakthrough Skyactiv Technology is an innovative automotive engineering approach that creates a unique sense of oneness on the road. Based on the ancient Japanese principle of Jinba Ittai — horse and rider as one — Skyactiv Technology creates a natural, intuitive relationship between you and your Mazda. Experience oneness like never before with the added benefits of superior fuel economy, enhanced safety and lower carbon emissions.
As a part of Skyactiv Vehicle Dynamics, our award-winning G-Vectoring Control (GVC) focuses on how g-forces affect you and your passengers to enhance the feeling of Jinba Ittai. Our engineers study the biomechanical relationship between you and your car to fine-tune the engineering systems and maximize a smooth interaction. Whether cornering or driving in a straight line, fewer steering wheel corrections are needed and fewer g-forces affect you and your passengers. Your vehicle behaves more in line with your expectation, reducing fatigue and increasing your confidence and enjoyment.
When you turn the steering wheel, GVC controls the engine torque to decelerate g-forces and shifts load onto the front tires to enhance stability.
