Just test drove this, arrived today at local Chevy dealership. Test drove 8- 9 cars in the past two weeks, and this is hands down the best. The features on the base LS for the price are amazing. Interior is classy and comfortable, reminding me of the Mazda 3 hatch we test drove. Fuel economy is unheard of for a non-hybrid SUV. Power was good in the 4 cylinder. 6-speed tranny! Very quiet ride. Nice exterior. Nice, long-lasting tires standard (720 treadwear). Vehicle computer seems like it would take some getting used to. GM has a hit on their hands, and not one second too soon. Blows Honda CRV and Toyota RAV 4 out of the water. Dealership was great to deal with, will return to buy one soon.
Great tires. Roomy. Interior front- seat area design is superb (padded surfaces, nice seat fabric, steering wheel design, lots of storage, etc.). Quietness. Overall fit and finish are excellent.
Less complicated HVAC, audio, and computer controls. Don't like the assisted braking. It is very new, but financing and/or customer cash incentives would be great.
