My vehicle has a lot of added features including a sync system which helps with navigation and allows you to utilize different features within the vehicle hands free. The double sunroof makes the vehicle feel more spacious and gives a lot of added light in the vehicle. It is a very reliable car and I have not had any recalls or mechanical issues. There are multiple settings for driving allowing for a smoother ride, you can switch between comfort and sport mode depending on the driving conditions. The vehicle has sensors that will turn on and off your bright when traveling in low light areas. This feature also shuts off when there is oncoming traffic. The interior has high quality materials used for seats and flooring, the gear shift and start feature are located on the dash so there is nothing in the way in the center console and allows for a larger storage area in center compartment. The vehicle is spacious enough for 4 passengers to travel comfortably and plenty of room in the back. The hatch opens with a swipe of the foot under the bumper so you can open it hands free when loading items in.

Zero complaints. Very comfortable and safe. Has great pickup and is great on gas. Very smooth riding vehicle. Has built in Sirius XM which is nice when you are over listening to the radio. Very comfortable seats. The backseat can feel a little tight but that is also with a car seat.

Very smooth ride, fully loaded car, with plenty of space for a small family.

The backup camera with beeps is my favorite feature. The size is good for my family of four and fits two forward-facing toddler car seats easily. It's nice that my phone plugs in and syncs but I do wish the car came preloaded with a navigation system.
