Add to that, you are guaranteed a comfortable ride with its generously-sized cabin.

Technology & Safety

Yes, it has an infotainment interface but the control knob is not as helpful as you think it will be. It has glitches and are unpolished making them look and feel lethargic. Advanced driver safety aids have not been updated too to provide the requirements of modern-day drivers.
