I went from a 2001 Toyota Highlander SUV to this wonderful 2007 small SUV car with all wheel drive. It's the perfect fit for me, a petite woman, who appreciates the height of this car and the power on the V6 engine. Wish it had a better sound system, but that is the low priority when I bought this car. I'm sure it will drive well in snowy conditions but this winter has been very mild.
High quality- paint is gorgeous, no orange peel. Superb gas mileage. Crisp handling. Great heated seats, good lumbar support. Gas mileage exceeds EPA, cruising at 65-75 I get 32-34 MPG! It has a 3.29 final drive for good acceleration. What's not to like?

This vehicle is not the best around for performance but it is very economical. I drive 50 miles a day, 250 miles a week and i spend about 45 dollars on average for the week. This vehicle is good for running errands, getting to and from work, getting groceries but it is not good for long trips or nothing like that. You give this vehicle it standard maintenance and it should keep running with no problems for a while. HUGE improvement from their old hyundai's that use to shake alot.
Some of the best compact SUVs today are efficient, with good power and handy features like a turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive, and even third-row seats. Check out this top 10 list, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.
