This car rides well and is very comfortable for everyone in my family to drive- from 6'0 230 to 5'6 120. I really like the Engine/Trans. combination and the mileage for a full size AWD car is amazing.
The 6 cylinder has more boogie but doesn't get the CVT trans. so the MPG is not as good and of course it's more money up front. If you don't care much about mileage and have the coin go with the 6- it's trans. is silky smooth and the extra power is sweet.
That being said, the 4cyl and CVT is loosening up and car is getting much faster. I don't mind sacrificing speed for mileage at $3.10 plus a gallon!
Get rid of that ridiculous MPG gauge and put in a temperature gauge. Include media hub in standard features. More power for the 4 cylinder- suggest 200HP minimum.
The car is touted as AWD and should be equipped with factory tires with better snow/ice ratings.
