This car was suitable for us when we first purchased it as a couple with no kids, & now as a family with two under 2-yrs, it's equally as suitable. Although we have had to buy a pod to accommodate all our baby stuff (porta cot, high chair... etc) when we go on holidays.
Handles well in wet whether, and fuel economy is quite good considering the 4WD component. We travel mainly on city roads & occasionally (once every 3-4 months) interstate on highways, and using 4WD mode whenever Melbourne skies rain. With this usage pattern, we average 10.5 Ltr/ 100km.
Dash is boring and dated compared too many cars built at the same time, it's fairly 'no frills'.
In the time we've had this car, it's been to the snow about a dozen times, & handles very well without chains. Also the fact that it has no interior fabric is great when loading in wet/dirty boots, snowboards or even large awkward items like high chairs & prams will not tear or dirty any fabric/carpet as it would in other cars.
Would recommend purchasing the rubber tray from dealership, as this has contained a lot of the dirt from everyday use.
