Great ride/handling balance

ReviewWe test drove an X model with the Premium package, and then an LL Bean model with NAV. Both were impressive, but we liked the perforated leather so we opted for that. The GPS was not set up for our region, but it didn't seem very intuitive so we passed. Ride is quite good and it corners very flat. It drives smoothly and SportShift is quick, completing shifts in a fraction of a second. This vehicle has the best visibility in its class, others have wide D- pillars and high rear windows and then try to up-sell you on a rear backup cam that is a cash cow for them, so you pay for their poor design. Can't wait to take delivery.
Best FeaturesRide/handling, balance. Visibility. Moonroof
Worst FeaturesBetter NAV system. Manual trans on the XT model
