All-New for 2017, G-Vectoring Control Makes Your Mazda3 a Smooth Operator

In keeping with Mazda's driver-centric Jinba Ittai philosophy of the natural connection between driver and vehicle, the automaker's 2017 Mazda3 sedan and hatchback standard offering delivers a drive-time that's practically an extension of your needs and habits.

As the first tech built into the SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS suite, G-Vectoring Control is designed to conjoin engine function, steering, throttle inputs, and suspension responses refine the road feel for driver and passengers alike. Upon steering wheel input, the feature reduces engine torque by a minute amount, shifting some of the burden to your Mazda3's front tires. That means a sharpening of response, complete with the enhanced steering feedback and more natural drive posture ideal for cornering with precision and agility. But most of all, it means less of a feeling of sway during turns and lane changes, resulting in a smoother ride.

We at Patrick Mazda surely see the promise of Mazda3's excellence for navigating curves and cruising the great wide open alike. Mazda developed its base four-door's capable 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G engine from looking at that of the Porsche 911, and the former's 184 horsepower, 185 pound-feet of torque, and competitive EPA-estimated mileage up to 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway speaks to its energetic nature.

The IIHS even rates 2017 Mazda3 a TOP SAFETY PICK+, noting, in addition to its laudable security during crash testing, the vehicle's SKYACTIV body and i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety features. These incorporate Smart City Brake Support, Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Radar Cruise Control elements. So, as to the ability to keep an eye on your environment while simultaneously maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles during your enjoyable drive? It's a matter of course.
