I researched this vehicle quite a bit before buying, honestly not my favorite looking SUV, but when comparing to it's competion, it is lower priced than the Toyota RAV-4.
The write up by Edmunds in regards to highway performance, or the lack of, is false!
If your comparing it to something with a V-8, then yes, it does not pass a car as well.
But it's not using a V-8!
I've driven many V-8's, and V-6's, this little SUV gets along great!
I'm getting 24 mpg combined, and 28-30 highway.
MPG, Stereo, All-Wheel Drive, smooth ride
More options avaiable, like fog lights, turbo, etc.
