Test drove a 2017 Mazda3 grand touring last weekend and I was a little disappointed with the handling compared to my 2010 Mazda3i touring.

The 2017 had less lean and held its cornering line better, but it lacked the older car's responsiveness and readiness to change directions especially that first response to light steering input. Possibly because the new car has too much weight (sunroof, larger engine, power seats etc.) and the new electric steerings general lack of feel compared to the older hydraulic.

Any thoughts on this from those of you who have owned both cars?

I feel that after market roll bars may help solve the problem slightly...
