Wanted a lower trim model but was boxed into the XLE to get AWD (they have an LE AWD but good luck finding one). Got the van for mostly short haul driving and occasional longer trips with the dogs. After a year, getting about 19 MPG average (mostly city) but get 23 MPG on highway trips. Ride is just fine for what it is, and it handles better than most of the other vans. NAV system is beyond awful, but I just use my Garmin instead. Will likely never use the DVD player. Backup camera is a nice feature. Runflat tires on the AWD haven't given long term issues yet, but paying $260 for a flat will grow old real quick.
Handling, Backup camera, Dual-Side Sliders.
NAV system that isn't 5+ years behind the times, AWD availability on more models, a way to avoid the run-flat tires on the AWD model.
