Great car. I live in New Zealand a country with all types of terrain, this grand wagon badged SUV tackles mud, snow, shallow rivers with an ability riviaing the best. Of course on road dynamics excel too. I'm unsure if many owners/admirers are aware of their off-road ability. Reliable, no motor troubles and smooth auto. 87,000km going strong. Brilliant 4WD layout. Added all-terrain tyres, plan to lift suspension 1.5"(37mm)
Under-rated off road ability, not bad on gas, total comfort and reliable
Although not designed for really hard core, they could do with a front bumper that allowed slightly steeper approach/decent angles, as this cars ability is somewhat hampered by even the current models over-hanging ones.
