Precise new rack-and-pinion steering, larger BF Goodrich Comp T/A tires, and a fortified 5-speed manual transmission were other upgrades for 1996. SVT-engineered underpinnings and 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS earned praise from magazine road-testers and rendered the 1996 Mustang SVT Cobra a true Grand Touring machine capable of besting BMWs vaunted M3, according to Automobile magazine editors.
