I love this car! But all I have to compare it to are big vehicles, Full Size Truck, Excursion and old Landcruiser. So of course I love the GAS MILEAGE! We have the Diesel. We live on a long dirt and gravel road with crazy mud and snow--was looking at a Subaru, but needed good gas mileage, this works! May buy mud and snow tires soon, but pleasantly surprised so far.
Didn't even consider the large sunroof. (don't care about things like that or the satellite radio), but got a good deal and didn't want to wait to order one without all of that, but guess what. We love it all. I always just drove for a purpose, now I take a drive for fun! Fits a Large dog crate!
Really wish the backseats laid flatter too and wish that the in dash power outlet worked when car was not running. All of our vehicles charge a phone when turned off, except for our old landcruiser and this 2011 Sportwagen--bummer.
