An interesting concept for a short station wagon.
December 1, 2018
It looks like a chopped sedan, with pleasant styling. I chose the Grand Touring CX3 model to test. I like the interior. It is comfortable and fairly quiet. Pick up is brisk, not super fast. This car feels responsive and firm. It is capable just slipped into drive mode and left there. But if you feel inclined, paddle shifters and stick shift works well. Sport mode gets higher revs and quicker acceleration. Gas mileage is good. I'm not sure I like electric emergency brake. It is easy to accidentally apply. I like lane change warnings, and active cruise control.
This is a car to drive and enjoy. It is a nice cruiser, especially the top model , which has everything available to that model, which is a lot of accessories, navigation, internet, hands free calling, etc. There's plenty of room in front seats. Back seats might be okay for short distances. It's cramped for all except small children. This fun ride works best for couples minus kids.
While some complain about lack of storage compared to other models, this model was designed for hauling arse. AWD model can run circles around most slower utilities and cars, while getting super gas mileage. It has a lower gravity center than others, and launches quicker than average vehicles.
The cabin was designed like a quiet cockpit. Wind noise is minimal.
