Smooth and efficient, works well with transmission, especially at moderate speeds, although with 2.0 TDI transmission is a bit hesitant to downshift when overtaking at high speed and uphill.
Precise and responsive for the small SUV
Good predictable breaks (a bit on a soft side), perform well in emergency situations
Tasteful, not "over the top", looks simple, thus you have to compare it with other cars in this class to appreciate the interior quality (especially in basic materials, rather than in flashy elements)
High quality, well built, no squeaks and rattles after one year of ownership.
