It won't win any races, but it rides and handles beautifully for its weight and height. The seats are the most comfortable of any cars I've owned. Going down the highway, the car tracks straight and feels solid. Exterior design is classy, and interior design is highly functional and efficient. The car is easy to drive and park, though the second row leg room is tight to make room for the third row and the generous cargo bay. The car was reliable during the 4 year warranty period. On the down side, the car is underpowered while only returning so-so fuel economy. It needs a new set of tires every two years. Had some electrical problems starting year 5. Dealer service and parts are expensive.
Exterior style and interior functions. Superb seats. Handling. Solid feel. Roomy cargo bay. 3 rows of fold flat seats. Powerful brakes. Just the right size. Split open hatch. Comfortable on long trips.
More power. Go easy on the tires. Better long term reliability, thus lower ownership cost. Bluetooth standard. More extensive dealer network. Improve these areas and I will buy another one in a few years.
