Basics of what makes a vehicle a car are very good - fine fit and finish, drivetrain is plenty powerful,smooth, and flexible. Trunk space is superior. Ride is quiet, but would prefer a bit less stiff suspension and higher profile tires on a family sedan. I don't care about Indy car performance on the curves. I know pizzazz sells, but wish Engineers would shift emphasis a bit from entertainment and novelty to utility. Steering wheel paddle switch shifting to play manual transmission is an idea whose time should have never come. Long after the shine wears off, such mundane things as a garage door opener and a trash container - not included - would be more satisfying.
Trunk space, the 6 cyl/6speed matching, and the seats
Get a little less Hollywood and a little more real in feature design and options packaging.
