A great value, for a small spot utility.

I am very happy with my new car. The 2.0 is peppy enough to give you the assurance to merge right into traffic. The sync system is nice, talking hands free for the first time was great. I am no longer distracted by the phone.

Needs bigger gas tank.

Really, my only complaints about this car is that for a small SUV it probably gets the lowest gas mileage of all of them and the gas tank is not very big. Since it's used for commuting, this is a problem. It's very comfortable to drive, and has plenty of room for traveling and hauling things. I have the Titanium model with from the bells and whistle standpoint it meets all my expectations. This one has the 2.0 liter turbocharged I-4 and has plenty of acceleration for passing. Even with the gas mileage issue, I recommend this car.

The car I've been waiting for

by Allen from Henderson NV | January 02, 2020

Moon roof, upgraded sound, navigation, leather heated seats and good gas mileage for an SUV. Everything I wanted in a car and more. I am a happy customer.
