Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsEngine gets rowdy at the top of the tach, but the transmission is well geared and controlled by a slick shifter.
Braking ratingAverage
Braking commentsLateral acceleration was clearly not a design priority. Awful tire noise. Minimal response to throttle input.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsFeels tall during hard transitions, even with its relatively little grip. Lots of body roll. Slow steering.
