Very good car for the value

It is a very nice car for the value!! Lots of bells and whistles technology wise. I returned my Grand Cherokee lease and decided to give it a try for the last month. I purchased the Ultimate trim with AWD. It’s a very comfortable car and drives fairly smooth considering the driving conditions I’ve dealt with the last few weeks(heavy snow/rain). In the snow, it handled pretty well, I did hear some snow scrape underneath but that was because of the lower clearance. The handling is pretty good and responds well. The gas mileage is okay for a 4 cylinder, I avg about 22.5. The sound system is very nice but I feel that the way the entire radio system/screen works will take some getting used to from my previous car. When I helped someone move, the cargo capacity with the rear seats folded down was equal to my grand Cherokee as I was able to fit 9 boxes. The little downfalls with the car aren’t a deal breaker to me but might be important to others. There are no memory seats. The 4 cylinder acceleration isn’t impressive but does as it is needed. And possibly the one thing I do find someone annoying is the key itself. The buttons are very very sensitive! I’ve found myself getting into my car on several occasions with the key in my pocket and I somehow am opening up the tailgate. I’ve also once activated panic alarm unknowingly. This alone in my opinion can be something that maybe Hyundai can modify in the future. But all in all, for the cost it’s a very good car and I would recommend it. Oh, the type of driving I do is commuting to queens from Long Island, as well as commute to NJ.

The new model is very nice. I just wish the automatic trunk option was included with the newer one. I miss having that feature already

Relatively new owner — so far so good.

I’ve only had the car for one week so really can’t give an honest assessment. However, the Hyundai has all the features I was looking to get in a new car.
