- 2018 TourX Essence
My TourX is sluggish for the first 20-25 feet, then the boost hits and with the steep first gear it pulls quite hard. I'm not used to a turbo. I bet it jumps with a brake torque and the TC off, but I have not tried.For the initial break in period, the TourX is definitely laggy. The more I drive it, though, the more I think that's just the initial transmission programming. The software adapts pretty quickly to aggressive driving once you get through the first 500 miles.
There might be a CUV out there that could out-pull a TourX off the line once broken in, but I doubt it. (FWIW, mine outran a mid-00s S60 R off the line just this week; it's definitely no slouch.)
