A very fast car, marvelous on the highway and fun to drive. Great acceleration between 80 mph and 130 mph. Not as good on a slalom as a BMW 5 series because the forward engine results in a large moment of inertia, but dynamite on those sweeping 120 MPH curves. It has been trouble free. The tires, as on so many performance cars, are not able to take potholes (expensive lesson), but they grip extremely well. For a car with more than 400 lb-ft of torque, the all-wheel drive allows you to drive with surprising ease on icy roads. It gets 25 mpg on the highway at 60 mph but about 15 mph in heavy traffic (i.e., it ain't cheap, with that 93 octane fuel needed by the 10:1 compression ratio).
Terrific acceleration and great brakes. Stiff suspension and steering allow for good sport driving. Corners as if on rails. Yet, it carries four adults comfortably.
Turn signal indicator (holding the cruise controls) is too close to the steering wheel. Storage space is limited.
