Mi­rai im­presses, qui­etly, in ini­tial re­views

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - METRO DRIVE -

2016 Toy­ota Mi­rai hy­dro­gen fuel-cell cars are on Cal­i­for­nia roads now, and Car and Driver was among the first me­dia out­lets to test-drive the lim­ited-pro­duc­tion sedan, do­ing in­stru­mented test­ing in ad­di­tion to seat-of-the-pants im­pres­sions. Test driv­ers drove the Mi­rai around greater Los An­ge­les, stop­ping at sev­eral hy­dro­gen fu­elling sta­tions along the way. About the worst thing they could say was that it’s not a sports car, ev­i­denced by its zero-to-96-km/h time of a slow-poke 9.4 sec­onds. Pos­i­tive com­ments abounded, such as “pleas­ant,” “com­fort­able” and “iso­la­tion-cham­ber quiet.” Sus­pen­sion, steer­ing feel and ride qual­ity were also favourably noted.
