Love this car!!!

by Fondue from Chisago City,Mn | December 04, 2019

I love the moonroof,leather seats and remote start. It has a smooth ride and with this vehicle I have AWD. Love all the airbags also.

Great comfortable and quiet sub compact SUV

by Encore Ed from Southampton New Jersey | November 19, 2019

9 out of 10 only because the interior lacks a full Console (only has one armrest for the driver) Plus no electric rear hatch or interior hatch release.

The SUV I was looking for

by Lena from Safety Harbor | October 31, 2019

The seats, glass for the blind spot, how the back seats goes all the way down to the floor, compact and comfortable for me love it.
