This car delivers practicality and high performance in a neat package. Four doors and a hatchback with folding rear seats turns it into a small van that will carry a ton of odd shaped items and luggage. It will outrun cars costing twice as much on the track and is a good daily driver. Gas mileage is very good overall and premium is required. Safety is outstanding with great level of electronic nannies to keep the all wheel drive under control at all times. Traction is incredible and braking is immediate and linear. The ride is a bit stiff even in standard mode but personally I don't mind it and no one has complained when riding along. Balance is perfect. Seats are comfortable, I am 6'5" tall and 225lbs and have driven for 10 hours or more without any discomfort. Passengers have plenty of room and sound system is good but I prefer listening to the engine wind up in each gear. Shifting is smooth and gears are well matched to the engine performance. If you want a car that will run with the best and yet deliver the grocery shopping, this is for you to check out.
