How is this possible? For one, by the fact that SKYACTIV engines allow such precise torque control and the SKYACTIV-Chassis and SKYACTIV-Body such ideal vehicle be-haviour. This also means GVC is compatible with any SKYACTIV model. And because it a software control system with no additional hardware, it doesnt add any weight to speak of, which is a good match for the Mazda obsession with cutting every possible gram. GVC thus goes hand in hand with the Mazda 6 philosophy as well as existing technology like i-ACTIV AWD, the carmaker intelligent all-wheel drive system offered for diesel-powered Mazda 6 wagons. Predictive rather than reactive, it smoothly sends power to the wheels that need it when they need it. i-ACTIV AWD actually foresees road conditions based on more than 200 readings per seconds from 27 signals covering various factors such as engine, transmission and windshield wiper behaviour as well as steering, yaw and temperature. Like GVC, it works under any road conditions, even if theyre changing rapidly, while reducing energy loss and fuel wastage from wheel spinning or too much rear-drive operation. So it not only makes driving safer, but also more efficient and, of course, more fun.
The SKYACTIV-G petrol engines are likewise a product of Mazda non-stop efforts to continue advancing the Jinba-Ittai driving sensation. Like the SKYACTIV-D, this means smoothly delivering the ideal linear response to driver input, behaving precisely as intended and providing the corresponding feedback. The engines are mated to six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatics or SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions. i-stop, idle stop system providing some of the fastest restarts around, is standard equipment, while i-ELOOP, Mazda unique brake energy regeneration system, is available for all powerplants except the 145PS versionof the SKYACTIV-G 2.0. Diesel-powered Mazda 6 wagons are also offered with Mazda intelligent i-ACTIV AWD system, which features a front-slip detection warning system.
For occupants well-being, the interior packages offer a level of sophistication, quality and comfort is indeed fitting for an upmarket flagship, and every bit up to the award-winning looks. The carmaker has clearly achieved what it was aiming for with the 2017 Mazda 6, namely a degree of attractiveness and a personality that outclasses its class with a human-oriented approach to premium that is uniquely Mazda.
Jinba Ittai, which means "rider and horse as one body", is an expression that traces back to the Yabusame ritual, where a mounted archer shoots an arrow at a target while controlling the horse with his knees. Rider and horse need to perform in harmony if there is to be any chance of hitting the mark. Mazda takes a human-centered approach to balancing the conflicting characteristics of agile handling and a refined ride, since they directly affect the Jinba-Ittai nature of all its products. Introducing SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS. Mazda is out to make cars that adapt to the driver, not the other way round. The purpose is to continually enhance the Jinba-Ittai sensation, or the linear connection - and communication - between the driver and the vehicle. Enter SKYACTIV Technology: In combination with SKYACTIV powertrains, the SKYACTIV-Chassis and SKYACTIV-Body were designed to deliver the best possible combination of handling, comfort, stability, efficiency and safety.
