With a growing family and the need to transport addtional occupants from time to time space was important to us. We had looked at most of the vehicle in this class and were either deterred by tight cabin space, low exterior/interior quality, poor fuel economy, or price. Though we are willing to pay to get what we want we don't have a track record of keeping cars more than 4 years. We take into consideration price, safety, options, interior space, styling, maintenance costs, fuel economy, increase in insurance premiums, and warranty. We do find the vehicle quiet, smooth, and fun to drive. We have a super duty truck and this SUV drives more like a car. We are happy with our purchase thus far.
Favorite features include Interior space and quality. Row 2 and 3 are comfortable and all seats have the ability to be reclined. 3rd row access is easy and we don't have to take the booster seat out when we need to provide access to the 3rd row. Vents and climate controls for rear is great. Lots of cupholders and storage compartments. The warranty is comprehensive at 48 months/60k miles. This vehicle gave us the most for our money in comparison to some of the other luxury vehciles in this class. Great standard options and technology.
Rear headrests styled to match row other seats, adjust the sunroof for
potential wind noise before delivery, rear design better matched to the front, better visibility out of back window, and make the touchsceen standard.
