Ride & handling - car rides great, is very quiet Rear camera view should display a guide.
Driving dynamics - car handles very well Mbrace system, because the cost of service is too high
Technology, particularly the side mirror indicators for blind spot Front seats could be a little more comfortable
Handling/ stability in adverse conditions Navigation system is not flexible, is hard to use
Overall engineering, performance and fabulous look Power, particularly getting up to speed from a standing start
The pickup when accelerating and the handling Seat does not go back when ignition is turned off
The body style & front grille If in drive & you open driver door, automatically goes into park
Keyless entry & engine start. The audio system sucks - lincoln has it beat
Engine - the diesel engine means fewer fuel stops The rear 3d row seat is not usable as currently designed
How well the front wipers / washers clear the windshield Cruise control lever is located too close to other controls
