After driving a large SUV, I was very impressed with the handling of this much smaller one. I drive a lot of rough, country roads, and the handling around potholes and gravel roads was impressive, as well as the comfort on the interstate. I was shocked with the quality of the interior, and the attractive look of the exterior. What a great little suv for a reasonable price. I test drove several other small suv's, and this one outranked them all by a long shot.
Electronic power steering! The driver's seating is comfortable and roomy. The engine is a good size for the size of the vehicle.
The back seat could be designed for more comfort for rear passengers. Although plenty of leg room (I love that it slides back), the comfort of the seat could be better.
