Averaging almost 20 mpg on first tank including urban Chicago driving and expressways. Handling very much on par with an X-3 and feels a little quicker and certainly more opulently finished interior. The 4 cylinder is surprisingly responsive. Feels faster on than the 2005 RL we traded even though comparable weights.
Nav, radio and XM traffic are all great. Pep, handling and braking are all superlative for a small SUV. Fit and finish are high end. Great interior storage.
Skimped on a few features like memory seats and auto headlights.
