Overall:

It's A Bmw, What Else To Say! — Well built and designed car. Quiet, stable ride. Auto-traction control great in the snow. Amazing acceleration for a four cylinder especially in Sport mode (thank you twin turbos!). Good visibility for an SUV. Runs great on mid-range fuel. Excellent braking and feels in control during hard braking.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drives like a BMW, which is a great thing. Excellent in snow/ice. Great sound system with USB plug in. Sound system rocks!

Cons: Fuse panel is extremely difficult to access (behind glove box wall through small opening), could have had less cheap plastic interior components
