It works like this: As soon as the driver turns when, say, entering a curve, GVC uses engine torque to generate deceleration g-force. This shifts the load to the front wheels, increasing front tire grip to boost responsiveness. When the driver subsequently maintains a constant steering angle through the curve, GVC restores acceleration engine torque, which transfers the load back to the rear wheels. This supports vehicle stability. Because the load transferring draws out added grip from the respective wheels, it furnishes a dynamic balance of stability and responsiveness, which in turn makes the 2017 Mazda 6 behaviour correspond more precisely to the driver intentions. And GVC does its job regardless of the driver skill level in a range of driving situations: At low or high speeds, on straightaways or winding roads, on rain, snow or ice, and even during emergency manoeuvres.
All elements in front of the driver flow outward from the centre of the steering wheel, which has an invigorating effect while also creating in the cabin a roomy ambience and sense of width. The extraordinary depth of the seats together with the deeply chiselled climate control louvers express outstanding quality and durability. The decorative panel finishing blends the warmth of natural wood with the strength and resilience of metal. The three interior packages available feature pure white leather, black leather or black fabric. Different colours were used above and below the instrument panel to emphasise the sense of physical unity with the car and its interior roominess.
The 2017 Mazda 6 is therefore the first model in Europe (along with the 2017 Mazda 3) to get the carmaker world-unique G-Vectoring Control, which regulates engine output to improve both responsiveness and stability, particularly in curves. It the first system in the brand-new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS line-up, a product of Mazda human-centric vehicle development approach that enables integrated Jinba Ittai-enhancing control over SKYACTIV engines, transmissions and platforms. Mazda newest flagship is also more refined than ever thanks among other things to innovations in diesel knock-suppression technology and turbocharger boost control now available for the Mazda 6 SKYACTIV-D 2.2. Safety, too, is being elevated with the addition of a new forward sensing camera. It expands the range and competence spectrum of several of the vehicle i-ACTIVSENSE active safety systems, such as automatic braking, also adding pedestrian and traffic sign recognition functionality.
Three i-ACTIVSENSE advancements debut on the 2017 Mazda 6, highlighted by a brand-new forward sensing camera extending the functionality of various systems. The first is Advanced Smart City Brake Support (Advanced SCBS). Replacing the system near-infrared laser, the forward sensing not only widens the forward detection speed range from 4-30km/h to 4-80km/h, but can also identify pedestrians. Advanced SBCS automatically applies brakes should it spot an obstacle or person in front of the car. It also works in reverse using ultrasonic sensors at speeds of 2-8km/h.
