Maybe not like a mid-engine V10 super-car, but I think it does help a little.I would only offer that the battery in your MavBrid is so small that it has no impact on handling or center of gravity.
Ford deserves a lot of criticism for the buying process and some corners cut - but man can they dial in a suspension on a small vehicle platform.
Your Tremor and the hybrid have a totally different rear end setup, so keep that in mind. It is well balanced and can take corners a little faster than some other SUV's I've driven before though. Less body roll than a RAV, but not as stable as a CRV, IMO. It's not trucky, more SUVish for sure.
