Test Driver Ratings & Comments
Acceleration commentsUpshifts are very fast and very smooth. We discovered that disabling the traction control only lasts up to a certain speed (20 mph?) after which it resets to "on." Even on, the TRC allows a useful amount of wheelspin before intervening.
Braking ratingAverage
Braking commentsIt's unusual to be able to detect EBD, but in the CX-9 each stop consisted of many left/right brake applications -- not so much that I needed to steer, but noticeable nonetheless.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsGood steering weight and response, but hard effort through the slalom is punished with aggressive stability control. On the skid pad, there is lots of body roll. Stability control also limits performance here.
