Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsWe produced our quickest acceleration times in "Drive" with traction control (TRAC) switched off. Minimal brake torque was used to load the drivetrain before launch. Wheelspin was minimal.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsThere's little technique with a modern ABS-equipped car. We simply stood on the pedal until the car stopped. ABS noise was minimal. Brake feel was good.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsThe ES is heavy and doesn't have much roll stiffness so it's not a fast car in the slalom. Understeer was moderate to severe.
