Highs

  • Comfortable ride
  • Relatively roomy interior
  • Easy-to-use controls
  • Standard AWD without a fuel economy penalty

Lows

  • Some engine noise
  • Driver's seat short on lumbar support

Best Version to Get

Most buyers will step up to the mid-grade Premium version, which adds alloy wheels, heated front seats, and  the EyeSight safety system. Opting for the upscale Sport gets you 18-inch wheels, a bigger touch screen, and nicer interior trim. We'd also add the blind spot warning system.
