Not the same old tune
Mazda reduced the amount of assistance to the electric power steering, particularly at speed, for a more natural feel. On the suspension front, Mazda altered the dampers and rear suspension, mainly to boost ride comfort. ‘Dynamic’ dampers with different oil and stronger structures feature, along with softer anti-roll bar mounting bushes to reduce ride harshness. A new rear suspension crossmember and an additional trailing link are claimed to increase the lateral grip of the tyres.
