Pros Cons
Engine and manual transmission well matched - blast to drive Estmated mpg - i feel that it was misadvertised; would have never purchased
Gas mileage great for an suv that isn't hybrid Transmission - shifts at weird times, often in too high a gear
Comfort - very comfortable for all passengers Storage & space: wish the sunglass holder was larger as well as center console.
Handling is intuitive & tight in all aspects. Rear of car picks up road dirt = dirty hands opening hatch
Styling, this suv is very sporty and unique Visibility other than forward through front windshield: many blind spots
Performance - small engine, big power Turbo lag - feels like rubber band
Handling on ice / snow. handles as well in snow as hot weather Premium fuel requirement - we're getting used to it.
Sun roof - amazing size & ability to use screen Seems to take too long to shift gears
Head lights, they make it really comfortable to drive at night Manual hood prop rod - should be a pneumatic piston
Visibility / driving safety love the headlights on this vehicle. High sill on door opening. have to swing leg back first to get in.
