Chas­sis and han­dling

NZ Performance Car - - Tuning Guide -

The Mazda3 MPS is an im­pres­sive-han­dling and -brak­ing ma­chine right out of the box, thanks to a rigid chas­sis de­sign — which has more brac­ing than the lower-spec mod­els — and siz­able 320mm front ro­tors, ap­par­ently sourced from a Volvo. To get bet­ter han­dling out of your Mazda3, you ap­proach it as you would most other front-wheel-drive plat­forms — in­stalling coilovers and front and rear sway bars will en­sure that your Mazda will han­dle at its best. Don’t for­get a set of good-qual­ity tyres, too.
