Pros
Thrilling handling
Strong and flexible engine
Well equipped

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior
Some road noise
Not the roomiest

Pros
Super spacious and practical inside
Great ride and handling package
Looks the business
Best in class infotainment and technology
Seven-year warranty

Cons
Base models miss out on more advanced safety features
No rear-air vents on most variants
No power tailgate
