Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsHoly Smokes! This SUV is very, very quick and feels like it could nearly outrun a muscle car. It leaps off the line, then knocks off super-quick upshifts with what feels like steady (not waning) power at the redline. Pulls and pulls and pulls relentlessly. Wow.
Braking commentsMore dive than I expected considering the active suspension. Quiet and seamless ABS. The shortest stop occurred on the fourth of five. Ample heat dissipation.
Handling commentsSlalom: First impression was shock at how flat it remained while being chucked side-to-side. It did not exhibit that sometimes awkward leaning into the cone that some Mercedes vehicles do with their ABC. Pretty permissive stability system allows the rather high limit to be probed without intervening. The front tires give up first at the limit, and just beyond that, the stability system will take the throttle away. Skid pad: Considering its size and mass, the steering feel and feedback are remarkably good. Again, a remarkably flat attitude all the way around the circle with mild understeer and auto-closing throttle at the limit.
