Drives like a car. Purchased for its reliability and safety rating. I wanted something safe for passengers (children in the car.) It has lived up to all expectations in terms of comfort, performance and reliability. We are on the highways a lot here - no complaints about acceleration. Excellent turning radius. After five years, still like the way it looks, inside and out.
Comfort. 2 side sliding doors. Easy to use rear door.
Deeper cup holders. Newer models have added side passenger drop down air bag curtains, all wheel drive, backing up sensors, seats that fold flush with the floor, GPS (although I haven't read how their system compares to Magellan, and are roomier, etc.) Another desired feature: hybrid fuel capacity.
