Distinctive and contemporary - best looking of the 'crossover' type vehicles although I consider this a wagon and not a crossover. Looks more like a car than a jacked up and boxy SUV.
Love the multi-functional center console - lots of storage. Also like the Panoramic roof, smart key system and power open/close rear liftgate. The 13 speaker JBL is very nice but could use a subwoofer.
The V6 (FWD) is extremely quick and very smooth and quiet even under spirited acceleration. The transmission is very smooth as well and the shifts are barely detectable.
This is my 4th Toyota (2nd was a 2002 Lexus ES300) and am generally pleased with the car but the overall quality is below that of previous Toyotas.
My MPG is averaging between 24-25 MPG which is quite acceptable. Most of my driving is on highways with maybe 10% city (stop & go) which would probably lower my average. Best MPG on highway was 27.8 mpg as calculated by the onboard MPG display.
