Pretty sure you’re aware by now of Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control (GVC) wizardry, found in the Mazda 3, 6, CX-5 and CX-9 to name a few, the world’s first control system that varies engine torque in response to engine input to improve all things vehicle control.

They’ve now developed a second generation of it called the G-Vectoring Control Plus which will be rolled out to all Mazda models, beginning with the updated Mazda CX-5 that just went on sale in Japan. Here’s a look at what the previous GVC system does:

GVC Plus applies light braking forces to the outer wheels to provide stability and composure to the vehicle for a clean exit as the driver steers out of a corner.

In addition to improving handling in emergency/evasive maneuvers, GVC Plus offers a reassuring feeling of control when changing lanes on the highway or even when driving on snow and other slippery road surfaces.
