Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsFastest runs were in manual mode, holding shifts until redline.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsUnremarkable brake feel, but decent stopping distance from 60 mph.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsRespectably quick in the slalom for crossover/compact SUV. Stable and predictable and well behaved. Much better speed than grip and center of gravity would indicate.
