The RL is a magnificent machine, and far and away the best value in its class. It is cram packed with cool technology and the AWD delivers amazing handling in all kinds of weather. Fit and finish are supurb. This car puts a smile on my face every day on the way to work each morning and tempts me to take the "long way" home each night. Highly recommended.
Overall comfort, AWD super-handling, navigation with real-time traffic.
At 290hp I wouldn't call this car anemic, but still, a V8 would be welcome.
