So far I have had my 17 on some twisty mountain roads over the holidays and was really impressed with the handling in the twisties, also liked The trans manual mode for down shifting. As far as soft ride, I would say it does have an extremely smooth ride, yet controlled at the same time. You can hit a dip in the road and you can feel it absorb the dip like on a cloud yet settles right back.
It's not really like the float of an old canddy or town car where they would ride really smooth, but had a lot of float with continuing bouncing after the initial dip or pot hole . The armada seems far more controlled then those old luxury cars, yet still really very smooth like those old luxury cars. I love how this thing rides and handles.
