This car has two personalities: casual cruiser, all-business performer. I have done two 8-hour+ trips in this car and arrived fresh. But on tight curves or in tough traffic, change the suspension and it will deliver. Sport and advanced settings deliver good road feel. No torque-steer noticed on hard acceleration. Brakes are excellent. I love entering the highway from a standing start...then glancing in the mirror. My mileage is a few MPG's above rated. Parktronic is a must-have, and watch the blind spot off the left. Winter road grip (w/ snow tires) is rock solid. Manual shifter takes practice, but is smooth. No mechanical problems.
Seats: you will not find a more comfortable seat anywhere. Power: torque still surprises me. Suspension: changing the settings really makes a difference.
Turning Radius: it is very wide and a burden at times. Headlamps: way too conservative- people think my high beams are lows and the lows can be dangerous on dark roads. Rear seating is cramped.
