Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus

Embrace S Curves.

Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) works behind the scenes to achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers. While cornering, G-Vectoring Control Plus applies light braking to the outer tires when the steering wheel returns to its neutral position, maintaining a stable vehicle posture for easier, more predictable handling.

More Confidence

More Confidence

Due to irregularities in the road surface, your vehicle does not always travel along the expected line, forcing you to make steering corrections. With GVC Plus, your CX-9 responds to driver inputs with fewer steering adjustments, so your vehicle behaves as you intend, and you enjoy a more confident drive.

A Smoother Ride

A Smoother Ride

GVC Plus enhances handling, stability and grip on the road during evasive manoeuvres as well as in rain, snow and on poor road surfaces. Plus, smooth transitions between G-forces suppress head and body sway, for a more comfortable ride.


Crafted to Make Driving Better.

The CX-9 with Kodo “Soul of Motion” design is handcrafted with available brushed aluminum and Santos Rosewood trim. Before we moulded a single sheet of metal, every line of the exterior was hand sculpted in clay by our designers to ensure that you experience driving exhilaration even before you get behind the wheel.
