Just got the car last weekend and am having a great time. This car is quick and responsive yet has all the versatility I need. I go over a mountain/hill in Berkeley/Oakland every day and it is a joy to drive through the woods, taking curves and downshifting manually on the downhills.
Rear view camera and live traffic on the GPS. AWD feels very secure during a recent rain in the mountains. Safety as IIHS Top Safety Pick Gold.
Better gas mileage but I guess there are tradeoffs.
