But before we look at the upgrades for 2017, we’ll answer the question many probably have, which is when the model will be available.

New G-Vectoring Control Technology on the 2017 Mazda3

quote from Mazda president and CEOOne of the big changes to the model is the G-Vectoring Control system. We’ve previewed this system before and it’s now been confirmed that it will come in the 2017 model.

Put simply, the system is able to vary engine torque output based on your steering input, which will provide control over lateral and longitudinal acceleration. It also optimizes the load on the wheels. All together, this help provide a smooth drive and limit the need for continuous steering adjustments.
