Although this model looks better than the previous generation, I still like the BMW styling more. The sharp lines in the hatch don't look good on this type of car. This car is way overpriced and can't compete with Lexus, Infiniti, Acura when the only engine option is a whimpy 3.0 V6. Why did they take out the V8? Also, the way the windows slope down in the two rear windows looks dumb and takes away blind spot visibility. My Pacifica has a bigger engine, more interior room, but gets the same fuel economy. Buy a Ford Edge and you'll get a car with better resale value for $10k less.
Switching to FWD for this platform was a good idea. AWD is overkill for 364 days out of the year.
