After watching the BRZ development video, it seems to me like the suspension was actually tuned a bit on the soft side, but able to keep its goal of superior handling due to the lowered COG. This way they could make the ride more comfortable than most similar, stiff-sprung cars, and the softer suspension also allows for better tire contact for better handling. I really like this lack of compromise that the engineers were able to accomplish. Just makes me want to drive it even more! CAN'T WAIT!!!
