Smooth attractive aerodynamic shape suggesting power and sophistication. Definitely does not resemble older "stodgy" Buick styling yet gives a sense of quality.
Rapid response of the Direct Injection engine without the "buzzy feel" of most large V-6 engines and the weird vibration their 120 degree timing gives the driver.
More than reasonable for a 5000 lb vehicle. Benefits of aero design ( for an SUV ) and six speed transmission both contribute.
Independent Rear Suspension makes it ride like a car not a truck.
With seats folded flat there is not too much you cannot load in the vehicle. With seats up, comfortable seating for 7 real-sized adults. Well thought out.
