The G-vec­tor spot

Wheels (Australia) - - Head to Heaod -

A sys­tem called ‘G-vec­tor­ing Con­trol’ is set to give the Mazda 6 height­ened on­cen­tre steer­ing con­nec­tion and turn-in re­sponse. It uses soft­ware to mimic the corner en­try tech­nique of a pro driver by trim­ming en­gine power ( in just 50 mil­lisec­onds) to trans­fer weight to the nose on turn-in. Our first taste of the sys­tem ( Wheels, Au­gust) sug­gested sub­tly im­proved con­nec­tion, pre­ci­sion and driver sat­is­fac­tion. A right-specced 6 with the vec­tor­ing chas­sis tickle might be the car to chal­lenge our Megatest podium-get­ters. We’ll see GVC first on the Mazda 3 facelift in Au­gust be­fore it’s pro­gres­sively rolled out across the range.
