Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsFeels great coming off the line under boost (with brake torque). Shifts aren't rushed and could be faster. Otherwise, engine feels amply powerful. Will rev match on downshifts, but not aggressively.
Braking commentsNothing special. Medium-hard brake pedal. No significant fade.
Handling commentsSkid pad: With nondefeat ESC ruling the day, there's little a driver can do but hold the throttle wide open and steer. Still, the number is good. Slalom: Goes where it's pointed reasonably well. Exits under throttle with neutral attitude. Very good body control for a car in this segment.
