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.

Put it in Sport Mode. Stiffens things up. At least it does on my 2016 AWS.

True! You'd think they would have tried that. Hopefully not only using Econ mode.lol
