Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsTurning off ESP allows quite a lot of spin off the line, and a prudent throttle keeps it in the sweet zone for a sub-3-second launch. It's too much spin if you just whack the throttle to the floor. Upshifts are smooth and right at redline.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsUnder maximum braking load, the soft pedal becomes firm and the Azera's nose dips dramatically, but the results are hard to argue with.
Handling ratingGood
