cargo-friendly interior,
plenty of tech features.

Pros
Spacious cabin and smooth, comfortable ride
Optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Loading the roof or cargo area is easier than in most SUVs
Above-average off-road ability

Slow acceleration from standard engine
Native voice recognition system isn't very accurate

forgiving ride,
generous list of standard and optional tech features.
