Ride quality remains soft, supple and impervious to bad asphalt
Interior features world-class build quality and artful materials

CONS
Touchpad-based infotainment is clever but distracting on the road
Accelerates quick for its size, but the pedal response feels slow, numb
General lack of sportiness cedes advantage to some German rivals
