You sit a little higher in the XB than you do in normal sedans. Not as high as an SUV, (back in the day I drove a Jeep Cherokee) but high enough to provide better sight lines on the road. The interior feels very roomy, and the seats are the most comfortable of all the cars I tried before purchasing the XB. The automatic transmission works well for downshifting when roads are snowy / ice covered. Could not ask for more at this price.
Riding higher than a normal sedan, seat comfort, safety features, and roomy feeling. Also, the heater warms the car up quickly. Hope it will cool as well in the summer!
I wish it had a wider rear view mirror to take better advantage of the view out of rear windows. I can get one online and install it. Also, I wish that the warning noise when you leave the headlights on was louder. As built, it is way to subtle and high pitched.
