For me it's the perfect vehicle: Sit high & comfortable without needing a ladder to get in, fit in normal sizes parking spaces, get 23 mpg & smile when filling up next to a totally unnecessary and environmentally unfriendly gargantuan suv, front wheel drive in normal driving and 4 wheel drive when necessary (automatically), 8 inch ground clearance, good cargo room and surprisingly roomy passanger room, excellent fit and finish and reliability you'd expect from Honda.
Size, gas mileage, comfort, finish & reliability. SENSIBLE!!
Although I find the 160hp engine just fine, some people used to a bigger engine may desire a little more power. If you really want a big engine in a small suv, go get a Suzuki with a 6 and flip it on your first quick turn!
