Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsFor the weight of the vehicle and the small engine size, acceleration was impressive. The high-revving engine liked to be driven a little into redline for the best runs. We used a brake-torque start and manually shifted the automatic. The transmission shifted at 6,100 and stalled at 2,500 rpm. The engine is smooth as glass with a nice growling exhaust note from the free-spinning, silky smooth six. Shifts were almost ghost-like in the manner in which they are delivered.
