Overall, this car is a pleasure to drive. With the T6 and AWD it can be a blast. This is my wife's car and she drives it like a soccer mom but when I run out in it, it becomes an animal and is worthy of any road or traffic condition. We came out of two minivans so maybe my expectations were low. For what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
The pickup and torque are my favorite features. comfortable seating although the rear leg room is marginal for grown children.
This is a small SUV in my opinion. Again, coming out of a minivan my expectations were out of line. Tight in the rear seat and not a tremendous amount of rear cargo space but it works.
