On the road, its manners are pretty good though. High speed stability is excellent, the car tracking true and barely affected by cross-winds.
What is truly impressive is its ride. Across rough terrain, bad roads or smooth tarmac, the Sport simply stays flat. And that makes it a very good multi-purpose vehicle indeed. The steering is well weighted, though a bit lacking in feel, a place where the Fortuner scores a wee bit better. Though there is considerable body roll on account of its high ground clearance, it has immense grip on offer.
