I didn't drive, but riding with LR it felt a little heavy at times. Like he said earlier it's pretty soft and it gets a little bit clumsy under heavy braking. When he got on the gas the whole thing would lift and you are pretty much looking at the sky.

It felt way different then a Focus to me. But again I wasn't driving. I could tell though something felt way different. I have a feeling the main difference is going to be in slalom type situations where you're throwing it around. This seems to be home territory for a Focus and I think the Mazda might have a little trouble here, maybe even not so much in stats but in feel at least.
