Chassis Stiffening to Improve Body Rigidity

Torsional rigidity has been improved by approximately 50% over MAZDA6

Local reinforcement on sub-assemblies to limit weight ,increase rigidity

Advantages include overall rigid feel, improved grip of rear suspension, and 
steering response

Four angled diagonal brace members added behind the rear seats 
(eliminating the fold down function)

The cross members atop the fl oor join the left and right sides of the cabin  to 
support the damper mounts

The strength of the suspension mounts at the rear of the body was increased 
to support the greater damping force of the new rear dampers

Increased size of the reinforcements for the inside of the bumper section 
strengthens the joint to the body

The cowl has been lengthened on both ends and connected directly to 
stiffeners on the front damper mounts

The numbers of joints between the instrument panel members and body were 
increased to create a stronger, more rigid assembly

The body mounts for the perimeter frame to which the front suspension and 
engine are mounted were strengthened

Reinforcing gussets were added to strengthen the left and right roof rails and 
header sections of the upper body
