Hello

its an electric power assist system on this car which should work evenly across the steering range

if its stiff at the centre position only then it could be a problem with the steering angle sensor not reading correctly

or it could be a mechanical issue with a frozen steering joint or suspension joint

I'd suggest testing for the latter by jacking the car so both front wheels are off the ground and then move the road wheel from lock to lock feeling for tight spots
