Nice quality. Very comfortable inside. 6 adult sized seats. Really. Most other large SUV's may "seat 7" but they are not nearly as functional. Decent power, but the 3.5 litre could use another 15-20 horses. Good handling but sways a bit if driven hard. Styling is excellent from the front. Good from the side. Questionable from behind. Brakes are super-powerful - almost hyper sensitive to those used to domestics. 7 speed transmission is very high tech. Works very well. Good car, available with discounts - surprisingly good value. A true crossover that's properly executed. I think sales will pick up once people realize you can have performance, room, safety, style and utility.
Transmission, huge interior, 6 real seats, 4matic, build quality
Rear styling. More power for R350,. Slightly less catchy brakes
