  5. Rev pulse when starting from stop

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I jumped from a 2005 3 to a 2018 3 hatch 2.5 and am getting used to all the computerized changes. I've noticed that the RPMs rise slightly when I put the car into 1st at stop - as if the car is anticipating that I will rev higher and take off soon. Is this my imagination, or has Mazda...
