Forget the Taycan's imposing stance. The Seal is a bantamweight in comparison. Its compact dimensions and smaller footprint make it feel nimble and responsive. BYD hasn't skimped on the mechanics either. Double wishbones on the front and a multi-link setup in the rear ensure the car stays glued to the tarmac, even on the twistiest ghats. Factor in the grippy 19-inch rubber and a near-perfect 50-50 weight distribution, and you've got a recipe for pure driving joy.
