Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsNot much to note here. Stick it in "Drive," mash the throttle and go. Surprisingly quick for a hybrid. Relatively quiet, too.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsVery grabby pedal response in first few centimeters of travel. Takes some adjusting to keep from sending your passenger through the windshield. Not terribly impressive performance either.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsSkid pad: This car is electronically limited by its traction/stability control in this test. The normal procedure for skid pad testing involves exploring a car's grip and balance limits around the skid pad to achieve the best lateral acceleration number. In this case it's a matter of mashing the pedal to the floor, dialing in some steering and letting the car do the rest. Trying to balance the chassis' limits against the pre-programmed limits of the safety systems is frustrating and pointless. Of course, limit driving is last on the priority list of most hybrid drivers. Slalom: Best times through the slalom are achieved by staying below the stability control's active threshold. Once it engages, the run is wasted. This car rewards smooth, slow inputs. Make a too-quick transition and you'll be fighting the stability control.
