This car handles like it is on rails...it is surefooted in both wet and dry conditions although I would recommend dedicated winter tires for those living in the snow belt.
The engine is this vehicle is powerful and satisfying...power is linear and the engine sounds are just right...quiet and unobtrusive when driven conservatively yet a very satisfying growl when you decide to be a bit more agressive.
