Very nice vehicle that you will probably love or hate. I have really enjoyed it but my wife doesn't want in it. Throttle and brake responses are a little touchy, the ride can be bad on bad roads but is normally very compliant. Drivers position, height and controls are very comfortable and well placed. Cabin is snug for a SUV but near perfect for the Sport SUV it was designed to be. Not overly impressive in any road comparisons to a car, yet if feels very sporty in every way and is very enjoyable to drive if you need a SUV but want a sports car. Fast or slow I average 20 mpg and have had no problems other than a dealership that seems to think they are the only ones in town. Cool Ride!
Drivers position and controls are near perfect to me. Feels sporty just sitting in it.
Road noise can be bad on aggregate roads. Nav system would be better if it could split screen with stereo. Needs an electric lift rear hatch and rain sensing wipers if they want to compete in the upscale market.
