First thing you notice is that it is a very comfortable ride - feels more like driving a sedan than an actual SUV.
Steering is very smooth and taking turns are perfect due the ESP system. There is hardly any "wobbly" feeling when ever you take a turn. Has the best handling I've seen on any vehicle.
You do not have the cramped in feeling like the Santa Fe or other SUVs.
Has all the options you would want in an SUV all in one very affordable package.
Accelerating and braking is very smooth.
Easily switch to 4wd by pushing a button.
Back seat folds downward to provide a tons of rooms for storage.
It's quite heavy (3500) so you don't seem to want to push it too hard (hence it may seem slow at accelerating) but when you do actually give it a push, the vehicle flies (0-60mph at 8 seconds).
Very stylish and rugged look.
