Hi all,

It's about cars.

"La macchina (automobile) tiene bene la strada" it means that the car is well adhering to the ground, doesn't swerve and so on.

The only try I can do is a litteral translation "keeps the street very well" which sounds a bit stupid and ridiculous to y ears...:D:D:D

Thank you!:)

    "hugs the road" is pretty good. Other common English phrases that might render the idea are: "hugs corners" or simply "the car handles very well".

    If i would say "ha una buonissima tenuta di strada " ought i say "to have a firm road holding ability"
    or rather "to have a good road holding ability"
