I got this as an everyday car, my other car is the new Jag so this is a pretty big downgrade compared to that.
Exterior, its nice, nothing great, but nice, its what you would expect from an entry level luxury car.
Interior, same as the interior, pretty generic, the dash and seats are made of decent materials. Seats are pretty comfortable, and the heated seats come on pretty quickly. My version has the touch screen, but I did not get the navigation because his is just a car I use to get to work and back, the touch screen has no lag, and its easy to use.
Performance, its slow and inefficient. I was really surprised to see that it only got 20mpg and that is on a good day. I would have liked to see it get closer to 30, but still its not that bad. The AWD makes up for the bad gas milage and its the main reason I got this car. The AWD is not as great as the Lexus GS350, but still great, I have had no problems getting around in the Michigan winter.
Overall its a good car, its entry level, so you get what you pay for. I am not I would get it again, if I am sacrificing power I would at least like to get some better gas mileage, but if you just looking for a nice reliable car that does great in the winter this is the car for you.
