Striking power and acceleration for an SUV. Impressive high-rpm power just like a G35 V66. Sharp, rev-matched downshifts are awesome. And quick 0-60-mph time is also awesome.
Solid, repeatable performance with good pedal feel from first to last trial. Very good for an SUV.
Excellent control feel on skid pad, and better information through the steering and chassis than many cars. Very good grip with decent balance that's receptive to throttle input. In slalom, EX has good feeling stability and control during fast transitions. Confident and composed, more like a tall wagon than an SUV.
