Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsEngine never feels up to the task, and reduction in performance over the course of several runs suggests it soaks up heat easily. Slow-shifting tranny.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsSoft, long-travel pedal action, and pedal takes lots of motion before ABS activates.
Handling ratingAverage
Handling commentsSkid pad: Stability control can't be fully disabled. Non-communicative at the limit. Front tires and steering don't relay much info to driver as limit approaches. Slalom: Very sensitive to smooth inputs. Must have slow but deliberate hands to avoid stability control intervention.
