Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsEngine sounds rough at high rpm — not very Honda-like. Also lacks punch down low — very Honda-like. Brake torque launch doesn't help accel.
Braking ratingN/A
Braking commentsObvious fade after four runs despite consistent pedal feel.
Handling ratingN/A
Handling comments.82g for a 3-row SUV is outstanding. Balance tends toward understeer (duh). Better than so many large cars. SH-AWD works its magic in the slalom by transferring torque in intuitive, easily controlled bursts during transitions. It's obvious what's going on and it's obviously working right.
