Mazda has always been different comparing to other carmakers. While many companies decided to slow down the production of roadster cars, Mazda was persistent with MX-5. This is just one example, but it proves that Mazda was always a specific carmaker.
Nowadays, Mazda has introduced G-Vectoring Control. This system improves dynamics of the vehicle and it has made debut recently in the new, revamped Mazda 6. Meanwhile, Mazda 3 will also use this control system. For those who are not familiar with G-Vectoring Control, there is a brief explanation below.

G-Vectoring Control (GVC) is the new steering technology developed by the Japanese automaker. For now, it will be introduced in new Mazda 6 and Mazda 3. It is so subtle, that many drivers won’t even notice that it exists.
The weight of the car shifts when you accelerate or slow down. If you press the gas pedal the weight shifts to the rear end, but if you slow down the weight is shifted to the front end. In this way, the driver has more control over the vehicle.

When you begin to turn a steering wheel, the cars with the GVC on will reduce the engine torque. After that, the weight will be shifted to the front wheels and the tires have more grip, which will improve cornering response. The system is triggered by the initial movement and the torque returns to normal once the wheel is steady.
The goal is, of course, the improved steering and better control of the vehicle.
