My vehicle is a great crossover for someone looking for a good in between.

The performance of the car is beautiful. It drives smoothly. It is good on gas. It is a bit too compact for my liking and could be compared to having the space of a sedan. The options in it are convenient and new. carplay is a great for keeping track of your music, texts, navigation, etc. All while not being too distracted on the road.

Head turning, jaw dropping beautiful!

Very reliable, no problems so far, smooth riding, luxurious, compact but comfortable. Trunk space is deceiving, it appears small but holds a lot. Sporty, large display screen, head turning, mouth dropping elegant vehicle. Classy. If you are thinking about getting this model think no more, get it, you will not regret it.

- Katrina F

Classy, comfortable and smooth.

I really like the stylish exterior of the vehicle. The interior is super nice. It is very comfortable to drive. You cannot really hear any outdoor noises, except sirens. The ride is super smooth. I like the color of the interior and I feel that this car performs really well for the class that it is in.
