The car is a pleasure though not a necessarily a thrill to ride. On the other hand, it's probably not a practical expectation to think of having a thrill ride every time you leave your garage. The pleasure comes from the feeling of driving a tight, quality car, with a nice interior ambiance and external design appeal, and good reliability.
Positives: All wheel drive, attractive styling, quiet interior. Solid feeling. Good control of the steering although not a true sports car driver experience. Touch screen features easy to use.
Drop down accessory panel very inconvenient and impractical. Can't reprogram navigation nor use phonebook entries while car is moving, so your front seat passenger can't even assist you. Run flat tires create a stiff and bumpy ride. Voice recognition functions relatively inaccurate in its ability.
