Mazda has announced the new G-Vectoring Control Plus technology will debut on the 2019 CX-5 range in Japan before being rolled out across other model lines.
Mazda’s original G-Vectoring Control was the world’s first control system which was able to vary the engine torque in response to steering inputs.
GVC Plus uses the brakes to deliver better handling stability by applying light braking force to the outer wheels. This stabilizes the vehicle and assists with returning to a straight line drive.
The system is able to provide smooth changes between yaw, roll and pitch of the vehicle in a variety of situations including under high cornering forces. Whilst emergency collision avoidance is improved, GVC Plus also supports the driver when changing lanes and driving through snow or slippery road conditions.
Japanese buyers will also get the CX-5 with the 2.5-litre turbocharged petrol that develops 169kW of power and 420Nm of torque.
Mazda dealers in Japan are starting to take pre-orders for the new CX-5 now so it won’t be too long before Australian buyers can get their hands on the new tech and engine.
