Taco vs Q
early morning shot...
Against the Q3 (or the Q5 for that matter) the Taco feels heavy, slow and very unrefined, yet, the Taco is not a bad place to be under treacherous Mexican conditions.
The cabin is outstanding, seats are super comfortable yet sporty, you got everything you need at hands reach and the steering wheel is thick and nicely finished, nice.
At Mexico's 1.5 mile altitude aspirated engines suffer a lot, sometimes up to 30% of the power is lost, driving the Taco I'm looking at the torque curve more than hp and find myself at a good pace, obviously in the Q I'm always blazing through traffic as it is super fast with its 2.0L turbocharged 211hp engine and excellent driving dynamics, yet the Q suffers a bit under bad pavement, a constant around here, huge speed bumps and potholes that could be classified as lunar craters and this is where the Taco shines as most obstacles are tackled with ease.
I finally picked up the plates and took off the side stickers... pics coming
now time to drive
