Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsSmooth engine. Transmission shifts at redline. Typical Honda power delivery. Not responsive to brake torque at launch.
Braking ratingVery Good
Braking commentsGood, consistent brake feel. No fade. Effectiveness comes at an intuitive point in pedal travel with no squish.
Handling ratingExcellent
Handling commentsRotates with throttle lift. Low limits but excellent balance for a small SUV. In the slalom: brilliant steering response and stability. Feels confident during fast transitions. Not the slightest bit tippy.
