I spent 15-20 minutes in this car with a salesman on board, so no hard driving involved. Was impressed by the feel of the brakes and steering as well as the ride, which was not wallow-y at all. However, I did not drive it hard so no conclusions there. Low speed ride was solid, steering and brakes responsive and not over servoed. Felt the engine was a little bit tepid for a car of this mass, I could see having to mat it frequently when picking up speed. Also has the expected turbo lag down low from a stop but nothing too objectionable. Quite roomy inside, tons of cargo space. Controls, during my short drive, seemed logical and easy to operate. Overall I would like to spend more time in it and drive it a little harder to see how it behaves. One note, there was a small rattling noise over bumps, I suspect it was the sunroof but could not verify.
