“Now on to the praise: Seating both front and rear is fantastic with lots of room that is very comfy. I have leather and heated seats, which is a must for cold country. Visibility all around is excellent, and the optional back-up camera is very helpful.
“The V-6 engine mated to the 6-speed transmission is a blast with no lack of power even when the car is full of people and luggage. Entry and exit into the vehicle is very easy, even for my five-foot wife. Both stability and handling are scary good, and it does not feel at all like the large vehicle that it is. Interior space is incredible and surpasses most in this class.
“For a new first-year vehicle, I have to admit Toyota did a great job. If they fix the few niggles, they will have something that will be hard to surpass in this price range.”
