Greatest Compact SUV for the money!
November 11, 2018
This car has been a great reliable car. I own the SEL model and I love it. This car has Navigation, leather seats, push-to-start and remote start, rear back-up camera, both heated front seats, Sony premium audio package w/ 10+ speakers and sub-woofer installed, front and rear parking assist, panoramic sun roof, 8-way power adjustable seat w/ lumbar support, dual climate control, 3 position memory seats, blind spot monitoring in mirrors, home link garage opener, after market premium wheels, towing package, roof rack, automatic rear gate, fully lay down seats for extra storage.
I got all of that for a great price under 15,000 and didn't have to go buy a foreign car/luxury brand. It's been a fairly smooth ride however there are aspects of it I wish were a little better. It's great if you have larger dogs because of the ample head room the dogs can stand well in the back. I have two great big dogs (German Shepherds) and they love to go on car rides with the back seats folded down! There's not a ton of room for a car seat from my experience and it will cost you a ton of leg room on the front passenger side or driver side depending on where you put the seat. So just be aware. It's definitely not the full family vehicle you think it might be (Pets, Luggage, Kids, etc.) so don't mistake it for that. I also don't recommend it for road trips longer than 7+ hours as it just simply wears you out from the road noise and suspension. However I've been extremely happy with this car and would buy another one if I didn't now need a bigger vehicle to accommodate a growing family.
