While the size of this vehicle makes it appear that it may be comparable to a RAV4 or CRV, but calling any similarity with those vehicles is nothing more than an insult. The vehicle feels, and drives like a sporty sedan. Put it into sport mode to feel a heavier, tighter sport-like steering. The vehicle launches very nicely, and gives a lot of torque. Excellently powered vehicle with a beautiful interior. The exterior can be odd-looking at first, but I fell in love with its unique style. My biggest complaint is the strange rear window, but it is not at all hindrance to reversing. I highly recommend this vehicle if you are in the market of a luxury small sedan, or hot hatch like the Mini Clubman.
