The optional Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension featured magneto-rheological dampers that can detect road surfaces, and adjust the damping rates to those surfaces almost instantly for optimal ride control. It included larger, cross-drilled brake rotors. With its special equipment, the Grand Sport offered consumers a unique — and more affordable — blend of performance and amenities.
