Mazda Engineers Recognized for Work on G-Vectoring Control


Five Mazda engineers were recognized by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers for their development of G-Vectoring Control or GVC technology.

Established in 1958, the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers Awards is meant to “encourage the development of Japanese mechanical engineering and industry” and to that effect, awards outstanding technologies annually.

This year’s win marks the eleventh time that Mazda has received recognition and the fifth since the introduction of Skyactiv Technology in 2011.

The award-winning G-Vectoring Control has been developed to change the driving torque of the engine according to the driver’s steering wheel operation. By controlling a car’s side-to-side and forward-to-back motion separately, it realizes a smoother, more efficient drive by optimizing the ground load on all four wheels. In addition, it reduces driver and passenger fatigue thanks to the reduction in unnecessary steering inputs, especially during corrective action.

Part of the Mazda Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics, G-Vectoring Control is standard on all 2018 models except for the MX-5 and the BT-50.

  2. Honda preferred by centennial(boring) drivers, Mazda for millennials (exhilarating) drivers

  3. G-Vectoring Control--> Mazda for better driving experience
    ZZZZ-Vectoring Control --> Honda for better sleeping experience

    1. I think ZZZZ is called ATTS but not sure what happened to it after 90's. Old Honda fanboys might be able to fill us in.

      Being newer, G-Vectoring is a lot better than ATTS, that is if Honda is still offering similar tech after early 2000's :)

      For those who disregard G-Vectoring it makes the car handle a bit like Takumi (better transfer of weight during turns and braking) even if you are not one.

    2. atts is practically the same as g-vectoring, i.e. electronic torque distribution. dahil relatively low-cost tech sha achievable even below PhP 2m, though for true performance benefits iba parin ang electromechanical torque distribution.

      pinaka-murang application i could think of would be wrx sti, though meron din atang similar tech sa fwd hot hatches tulad ng focus rs(?) tsaka golf r

  4. Honda + turbo = decent performance, 0-100km/h under 8 seconds.

    Mazda + turbo = overheating engine, loss of performance

    1. uhh, sure? comparing a civic rs to a cx-9... STUPID apples-to-oranges comparison by a STUPID fanboy/hater. maniwala pa sana ako kung DETUNED cr-v diesel yung pantapat eh.

      civic rs:
      performance-spec 4-door. in itself a great product, though personally i prefer RWD or AWD. so yeah, WRX /STI or nothing

      cx-9:
      designed for the us market as a soccer mom car. changed from 3+ L n/a v6 to 2+ L turbo 4 to give better low- to mid-range torque, and better emissions and fuel mileage. DEFINITELY not performance-spec, more entry-level luxury as mazda's flagship.

      besides, you missed the elephant in the room. besides nissan's gt-r and subaru's wrx, NONE of the jap brands have an uninterrupted line-up of performance-spec forced-induction cars. it takes years to build the engineering expertise to provide a no-frills turbo car.

      bago palang ang civic rs, at least 1 year away pa ung supra, at baka in a few years i-transplant ung twin-turbo v6 ng ls500 sa next-gen na is f, rc f, gs f.

      maliban dun, you're looking at the mx-5, the toyobaru twins, tsaka ung z na wala sa pinas.

      so yeah, get your facts AND arguments straight.

    2. LMAO! Nagalit tuloy sayo si Mazda fanboy, hindi makatanggap ng katotohanan eh.

    3. Anon 3:26 apparently haven't read the overheating issue of the cx 9 in the other article.

      The loss of performance referred to is when the temperature reached above normal levels. I guess, mazda put it as a fail safe security so the turbo won't blow.

      It's not about the actual performance but the loss of it after it overheats.

  5. be honda fanboy... buy civic... cvt is so boring to drive... fall asleep while driving... crash... die


    be mazda fanboy... buy mazda 3... go zoom-zoom like the ads tell you... crash... die


    be TOYOTA™ fanboy... buy TOYOTA™ Corolla Altis... get manual... enjoy driving... never fall asleep... does not crash because ads don't tell you to zoom-zoom... live happy till 65... Altis still working... Altis becomes vintage car... sell Altis for millions... get rich... afford life extension... live forever

  7. What's with these pretentious Honda fanboyx?

  8. Honda civic: cartoonish ricey styling, mediocre sound system, cheap materials used, boring CVT, expensive PMS, cold steering feel, lackluster engine note, overpriced, diehard fanboy car.

    Mazda 3: elegant styling without cartoonish elements, best steering feel and handling in the class, Naturally aspirated engine, free PMS, GVC, great sound sytem, high quality materials used inside out, not CVT equipped, great engine note, won't me mistaken for a blinded fanboy, great value for money, unbeatable driving dynamics in the class.

    1. so whats NA engine can do compared to turbo

    2. Said he won't be mistaken for a blinded fanboy yet he put naturally aspirated engine as an advantage. What a hypocrite.

    3. Thats the biggest horse shit ive ever heard to a mazda fanboy.

    5. Naturally aspirated engines lasts longer and have a better natural feel than a kick from a turbocharged engine that will cost arm and leg to replace.

      Funny that you pointed out the NA engine while disregarsing the Civic's disadvantages. Who's the hypocrite now?

    6. This is why mazda fanboys have the worst image of all. They think their design is vastly superior. But when you look at it. Theyre using recycled design over and over and over its getting old. Seriously please?. CVT has advantages with regards to fuel economy. The turboed engine is also for fuel efficiency not just for performance. Also the civic isnt meant to be raced as well as your puny mazda 3. As to engine note? Seryoso ka lang? Inline 4 hinahanapan mo ng magandang engine note? Ricer ka siguro kung ako sau iwan na natin ang engine note for v8 v10 and v12s. Mazda 3 isnt even a luxury car its an economy car like the civic. Its meant for daily driving. Atleast ung Civic kung nakita mo sa kalsada it looks like civic it has its own identity. Ung mazda 3 mo? It will look like a cx3 cx9 or a mazda 6 walang sense of identity.

    7. Yout beloved Honda is following this path as well. The civic, the mobilio and now the brio, lol. You wouldn't dare tell the Germans that their same designs sucks don't you? The Mazda 3 looks superior indeed in design alone compared to any competitor both inside and out, you'll be blind to deny that. Especially the Mazda 3 Speed in soul red crystal. I prefer better feel than that boring CVT. If the Civic 1.5L achieves 8-9km in traffic, the Mazda 3 2.0 achieves 7-8km/L which is not bad for a 2.0L. Did I ever mention anything about racing? Its you ricers who proclaim tht the Civic RS will smoke the mazda 3 in a straight line, which doesn't need skill. Try catching up to a Mazda 3 on twisty mountain roads, your puny Civic's handling is no match for the superior handling of the mazda. Ricer? I'm just comparing the 2 cars in their stock form, ironically, it is Civic guys who are well known for being ricers. Yes, it's not a luxury car but it feels high quality compared to the civic's cheap quality. Go to both showrooms and feel both cars inside and out, you'll see my point. Identity? The civic is so common, you'll not even bat an eye if one passes by. Yes, mazda's have the same grille and design language but when one especially in soul red passes along, you can't resist looking at it.

  9. i really love reading the battle of comments between this two group of "fanboys" why don't you just respect each others brand. they'll be no stress and no hatred on each other's part.

    "pedicab fanboy" here---

  10. how about mazda vs bmw? which handling is better?

  11. Fanboy comments:
    - "Ung mazda 3 mo? It will look like a cx3 cx9 or a mazda 6 walang sense of identity." So what is "sense of identity" so Honda, BMW, Benz, Kia and Hyundai have no identity too since all their car models looks the same? You call that brand identity.
    - "This is why mazda fanboys have the worst image of all. They think their design is vastly superior." Hard truth, Mazda dont sell like Toyota's because of perception of people like you. However, their designs are hailed by auto journalist around the world although it has its short coming in cabin noise and space.
    - "Mazda 3 isnt even a luxury car its an economy car like the civic. Its meant for daily driving." Wrong again in all count, mazda 3 sits in between economy and entry level luxury which honda is trying to emulate and follow.
    - "Mazda fanboy, check in 1 street if you can see 2 driving Mazda in any models u are lucky if u can see them. " I see them in the highways and in the streets, not frequent though you can still see them.
    - "Mazda CX-9 turo 4 issues" I quote the objective comment of another reader, It’s a mechanism of the car itself! I’m not saying it’s the best engine, however it’s design is aiming for lower co2 emission through higher combustion rate, and of course what happens when he combustion is higher? It becomes hotter! There’s no way a car manufacturer would build cars that would over heat and break down easily, that would ruin the whole point of the engine concept and company itself, please do understand how things work both sides before placing a judgement. I do refer this to any of the car reviews, and not specifically Mazda. These engineers definitely have their side of ideas, and I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t messed up on simple things such as the engine over heats and breaks. After all they do run long period car tests, if it broke down before it, there’s no way they’d sell it. CX-9 reliability though is so-so, named one car company that has no reliability issues and dont mention mazda pls. My 2011 Mazda 2 had rack and pinion issues that were quickly address before. So for CX-9 owners, they just need to bring their cars to their casas, its covered by Yojin3 anyway.

    BE OBJECTIVE and stop fanboyism.

    1. LOL, the cx9 didn't just overheat, it went into a pseudo limp mode according to the article because of the heat. It wouldn't accelerate. Its not a mechanism, its engineering failure at its finest. Daming palusot, sino kayang hindi objective at sobrang nag fa-fanboy ngayon?

    2. Haaaah! Another Mazda fanboy spotted.

  12. Who's the fanboy? You, I just objectively said the cx9 has a lower reliability ratings even as consumer guides sa US regardless of the failure.
