Will not brake-torque. Hates pedal overlap. Engine is brilliantly smooth and shifts are consistent at 7,000 rpm. But is this on the pace of the rest of the class?
Impressive pedal feel. Consistent response and minimal idle stroke make for a confident combination on every stop. Short stopping distance as well.
Skid pad: Terminal understeer the the limit despite high grip. Little body roll. Very good body control on uneven surfaces. Slalom: Very stiff--and as a result, very responsive in "dynamic" mode. Ultimately a very sharp, comunicative sedan.
