Likes &


  • Very quiet and well-isolated cabin
  • Tight-as-a-drum build quality
  • Big-sedan poise and good roadholding
  • Wide price/equipment range to fit all budgets
  • Long-standing reputation for reliability and high resale value


  • Exterior styling looks derivative
  • Rear headroom limited by swooping roofline
  • Fuel efficiency is good, but not improved


  • Base four-cylinder model is peppier than rivals
  • Very fuel-efficient with four-cylinder and CVT automatic
  • Especially torquey V-6 can keep up with some sports-cars
  • Crisp, responsive handling


  • Back-seat not especially roomy
  • No way to avoid gimmicky keyless ignition system
  • Four-cylinder models don’t include stability control
