First the bad news after 500 mile road trip. Front seats don't provide the comfort/quality support that second row seats do. Longer seat bottoms like the second row would be the fix for tall guys. The seat covering on front of the driver and passenger seats bottoms will not stay attached to the seat pan. I noticed this in the first 30 miles. It's on my list to fix. The hood, headlights and grille don't line up correctly. Gaps are off on lift gate. Low speeds 18-22 MPH on gravel roads leaves the trans hunting for right gear. Not enough storage areas. Steering wheel is too far from driver when seat is back. Tires vibrate even after dealer balanced them before I took delivery.
Now for the good. Power is great due to gearing and trans combination. Design looks good. Drives well with good balance between sporty and comfort. Standard features on base model are all you need. Extra light when turn signals are on. Open feel. Quiet, conversation easy amongst all passengers.
Telescopic steering column for drivers over 6 feet. Extended seat base for driver and passenger. Better attachment of seat fabric to seat pan. Improve MPG. Improve fit/finish of hood and grill. Tire quality is questionable. Needs storage console between front seats.
