Mazda's new technology


Works like this: As the driver starts to turn the steering wheel when entering a corner, the car's on-board computer discreetly cuts the slightest amount of engine power in a matter of milliseconds.

This has the effect of putting a fraction more weight over the front wheels. This in turn gives the front tyres (tires) slightly more grip and creates a more secure cornering feel. Mazda 3's will get it first in Aussie.

It's called G-Vectoring and new models will be fitted with it as they are updated.

Will this affect AWD models too or is this mainly designed for the FWD models?

I imagine it applies to all their cars. And, just to add, it's a technique used by race car drivers to make faster turns. There is just one catch. By the company's own admission, it's imperceptible. Mazda has spent 8yrs developing the technology--which processes 200 bits of information per second--and has patented the design.

Unless I am going really slow, I always ease off the gas when entering a curve.
Is this technology different than that?

Sounds pretty close to the same thing to me.
