Got the 19 V6 Paws Tech. Overall handling feels good for fwd. Honda/Acura engineering has done FWD now for decades and are quite good, and maybe the best at it. There are times though it may feel a bit bouncy. I don't know if it's more so before things warm up a bit. Lateral movements feel agile and you can make moves rather quickly at speed. Got to remember the weight up front with the V6. The four cylinder may be a bit more tossable but I'd rather have the V6 power with the what I call more than adequate handling. Did you check out the SHAWD? I don't like the engine start stop stuff and in FL I don't need AWD.
