Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsThe Freestyle feels very good in the slalom, steering weighting and feedback is amazing for a family vehicle, and the chassis is very stiff with lots of effective suspension damping. It's a big vehicle and is fairly heavy, but in terms of its actual behavior in the slalom it's very impressive - Karl Brauer
