NVH Improvement

The new Mazda Tribute's interior not only has a stronger sense of quality and console functionality, it is also a quieter and more comfortable place to be. Wind, road and powertrain noise have been significantly lowered by the use of more sound-insulation material. Improved body sealing has reduced air leakage considerably and there is now thicker noise insulation material on the dash and quarter panels, and the tailgate. Several body parts have been redesigned to produce less wind noise as well. These include mirror housings and mirror gaskets, as well as improved B-pillar cutline seals. As a result, road and wind noise have been reduced even further, which contributes to the overall driving comfort of a vehicle that already possessed high levels of this to begin with.
