4WD certainly hurts acceleration performance. Engine feels and sounds like it's really working at high rpm. Brake torque does little to help runs. Best run was in D.
Very high effort for only mediocre return in stopping effectiveness. Very little idle stroke. Overall, feels out of place in an SUV.
In the slalom, good steering communication allows relatively precise placement in slalom. Good body control as well. Above traits help Tucson in skid pad as well, where it communicates and responds better than CR-V, RAV4 and Equinox. Numbers, however, aren't signficantly better.
