Shop and compare you won't beat this SUV when it comes to style, quality, reliability, and value. I've test driven nearly all the mid size luxury SUV's and you can't beat this car. The ride is solid on wet and dry pavement, on back roads or cruising at 80 mph down the freeway. Going skiing driving on ice and snow there is no slips going up or down. There is room for all the gear and four people in the car! Who needs a rack. Going golfing same thing.
For an SUV this is about as far from a box on wheels as your going to get except for some of those station wagons in disguise. Only the B'mers and the Lexus RX330 match this SUV's exterior styling
For tall drivers getting your right leg under the steering wheel when you enter is a little tricky even with the steering wheel up.
