Reviews and Ratings
Overall Rating
Pros Cons
Comfort - good for long trips Lower 2nd seat for more cargo area
Gas mileage & versatility Sticker price tag said mileage was higher for local & highway
Overall looks - sporty, yet clean, classy lines. No trailer hitch option and low towing rating
4wd capability - good handling in snow Lack of dedicated rear seat lighting control
Control of road - feel very safe Visor popping out when being used
High off ground, but feel connected Rear headrests need to be taken out to see out rear window
Back up camera is fantastic for parking Engine - noisy for a 4-cylinder
Front heated seats- great in cold weather A bit sluggish when getting out of first gear
Vehicle exterior - good looking vehicle - not to small or too big Side body moulding not available to prevent dings & dents.
Handles well in rough conditions - curves, bumps, etc No handles to help riders get in the back seat
