Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsSport mode in combination with heavy brake torque actually produces best accleration run. No shortage of power here...even to the extent that managing wheelspin off the line is important.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsImpressive brake feel and sense of fade resistance. Distance, however, does not reflect this confidence, with later runs creeping longer and longer.
Handling ratingAverage
Handling commentsSteering weight is heavy for a minivan (heavier than Odyssey) but electric power steering still lacks the feedback of conventional systems. Non-defeat stability control means both handling tests are ultimately better with ESC on. Turning it off results in heavy intervention.
