This is very comfortable car. Lot of amenities and it feels very safe. The H-K sound system is outstanding. I have had it not long enough to make a judgement on its reliability yet, but so far it has been a great car. I took my friends out and none could tell it is powered by a diesel engine. The acceleration is exceptional and the handling are quite sporty. It is also a very quite highway cruiser (reving at 200 rpm at 70mph) and has plenty of power for passing.
The diesel engine. The safety features that makes the passengers/driver feel very safe and secure. The nice interior finish - the wood trimmed steering wheel is a very nice touch. The efficiency of the front and rear defrost. The very comfortable and quiet ride. Room on the back seats.
Behaviour on snow could be better. Where's the 4-matic for cdi??. The fabric on lower portion of the doors and around the frame gets dirty far too easily. I am not too sure about the cruise control (can get confused with the turn signal too easily. Confusing command control
