Unbeatable Value - feels luxury sport without the price of branding.
February 12, 2019
I have the SE with 4 motion and optional third row.
Love this car, anyone claiming it is slow are not driving it right. Sport mode is very useful for passing, and the throttle gets hungry, I've gotten to 85mph a few times on accident. The torque is real, hills feel just easy, and the 7 drive modes including snow/ice and custom on-road, custom off-road modes really let you drive the way you want for whatever situation. The backup cam clears with the rear wiper spray which is handy in Seattle, I've driven it safely in over a foot of snow and up icy hills already, and the entertainment system is way juicy, and I dont even have the upgraded Fender system. Panoramic sunroof/moonroof feels so nice when driving through the country, and has a wind guard when it opens which is a nice touch.
Every design aspect ive encountered so far has been very thoughtful, the features and experience for the price can't be beat. Also its quicker than the Mazda CX-5 Touring.
The only annoying thing I have found is that when I leave it in my custom drive mode, the next time I start the car it says it is in my custom mode still, but the dash tells me it is in normal D drive mode and not the drive mode I set up in custom, so I have to cycle through the drive modes back to custom for it to adopt my settings again. Probably an easy bug they can fix.
I showed my sister this car and everything it can do and she went and bought one within the week.
6 year 72k mile bumper to bumper warranty is pretty incredible also.
