Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsThis is no wheezy four-banger, that's for sure -- it's got some power. Allows wheelspin even with traction control on -- rare for a Toyota. Best launch came with automatic tranny in Sport, stability control and traction control off and power-braking to 2,600 rpm. Manual shifting via console lever does not hold gears (pull back for downshifts); does not blip throttle on downshifts; shifts automatically at 6,100 rpm.
Braking ratingAverage
Braking commentsReasonably firm pedal feel and good fade resistance. Lots of front-end dive and, correspondingly, very light rear end, with some side-to-side movement. More-than-usual ABS pumping felt through pedal.
Handling ratingAverage
Handling commentsSkid pad: Plenty of understeer. But with stability control off, the chassis was willing to cooperate with drop-throttle. Overlying factors here: soft suspension and slippery tires. The stability system wasn't overly intrusive even when switched on. Slalom: Another rarity for a Toyota product -- Stability control stayed out of the equation when turned off in the slalom. Surprisingly tossable and controllable, considering this is a ho-hum midsize four-cylinder family sedan. The steering doesn't have much in the way of feel, but turns in reasonably quick. Suspension is soft, giving a lot of body roll, and tires don't have much grip. But for what it is, it worked well. When turned on, stability control can be very intrusive if you aren't dead-smooth with your inputs.
