Quicker without brake torque, which only seems to wake torque converter lockup more slowly. Otherwise, there's little a driver can do to hasten acceleration. No manual shift option. Just stick it in "D" and wood the pedal.
Typical Honda brakes. Adequate for one stop; then, feel and distance suffer quickly.
Skid pad: Nothing surprising here. Feels like a tall, heavy Accord. Heavy understeer. Slalom: Adequate body roll control to not embarrass itself through the slalom. Easy to gauge its limits and reasonably easy to place accurately at speed.
