Although styling is subjective, I realy like the lines on this car. Striikes a good balance between sporty and practical. Much like a bigger Focus.
I find the handling to be among the best in the compact CUV segment. Like a slightly taller Focus (and that's a good thing).
Very quiet, but buttoned-down ride quality. Much more refined than others in the category, including the Forester.
Although you may see it differently, I love the operation of the My Ford Touch. Very easy to learn, and allows you to do touch or voice commands.
