French term or phrase: tenue de route & bonne assiette
Sentence says: "Le modèle (de voiture) presente: ...Bonne tenue de route/ bonne "assiette". It's related to car features. Would appreciate the best context-related translation. Thanks in advance for your help. :-)

Merci beaucoup Golub. Your answers make total sense to me. I had indeed thought of "road holding" but the "assiette" bit got me somehow confused. Yeap, one needs some good road holding when looping around in the info-translation superhighway!! Never too far from a crash...Merci bien :-)))
