Very modern styling and the barcelona red metallic paint is a great color.
Fresh modern interior with very simple, easy-to-use controls and gauges.
Fuel economy is exactly as advertised, 25mpg overall.
This car has the most cargo room in the class with is very important to me being the father of two young children.
The car is a mixed bag when it comes to standard features. I have the base model LE with AWD. It has a standard backup camera, 6 inch touchscreen audio system and rear privacy glass which is great. However some corners were cut also. 16 inch steel wheels, non-body colored side mirrors and only auto down not auto up driver's window are a few examples.
Handling overall is fine but the electric power steering is extremely light and vague when driving at very low speeds. Once you pick up speed it has more weight to it but pulling into a parking spot for example the steering gets way too light.
Materials & workmanship
Some of the materials are of good quality but some, like the fake carbon fiber, is very cheap looking.
The ride quality is okay but can get a little jarring over rough pavement.
This is definitely the best all around car in the small suv class. In my opinion it has the best combination of cargo capacity, fuel economy, reliability, resale value, features and performance.
