I bought the base 4 cylinder model and am delighted with it after almost 8000 miles. Unless you can't do without a V- 6, the 4 has more than adequate power, (climbs hills nicely), is very smooth and quiet, (right at 2000 rpm at 70 mph, 2500 at 80 mph), and gets 30 mpg on the highway. Very comfortable, quiet and nicely appointed interior. This vehicle ranked #3 in U.S. News & World Reports overall rankings of 26 affordable crossovers and it's easy to see why.
1) center console, 2) seating positions, 3) leg room, front and rear, 4) quiet ride, 5) highest gas mileage of any non- hybrid crossover in its class, 6) nice level of standard equipment
A back up warning beeper would be a nicer option than the back up camera, especially with limited views through the back and side glass.
