My first new car; love every minute of driving it. awesome looks, great comfort and a driving pleasure. Low noise, awesome seats, great driver position (nice and high). We love the two-piece rear gate as we have a dog who hops onto it as well as stays in on warmer days with the lower gate closed. main reason for buying was safety and looks. looked at BMW (X3 too small; X5 too expensive), Acura (tacky), Infiniti (weird), merc (unreliable?).
looks, understated luxury, seats, quietness, the rear curve
more interior storage, better display on the sound system (i have the 6 cd system which still has the 80s style monochromatic dot-matrix display)
