G-Vectoring Control brings a feeling of calm as you enjoy precise, accurate and responsive steering with maximum grip even in wet conditions. This handling gives smooth transitions when turning and cornering and makes for a less tiring more pleasurable drive


Ordinary all-wheel drive isn’t enough. Our i-ACTIV All-Wheel-Drive uses 27 sensors to check road conditions 200 times every second, seamlessly switching between two and four-wheel drive. Enjoy perfect grip on any surface, in any weather, and experience that Jinba Iittai feeling of perfect harmony with the car.


When you stop in traffic, our i-STOP system saves your fuel by switching off the engine. Working in perfect harmony with i-ELOOP, i-STOP not only significantly increases your fuel economy, it positions the engine pistons in the optimal position so you can re-start and move off quickly.


i-ELOOP stores the electricity that’s generated when you use the braking system and then uses it to power the headlights, climate control, audio system, or any other of the car's electrical equipment. Not only a unique way to store otherwise wasted energy, i-ELOOP offers improved performance and saves you fuel in the process.
