Sturdy to look at, it is a display of toughness and durability. The front end is one of its downsides however as it could have been more sleekly designed.

Performance:

The V6 engine in this car is capable of providing 276 horsepower and this is paired with an eight speed automatic transmission. The shifting of the gears is very smooth. In terms of fuel efficiency, it is quite a thirsty machine. This however doesn’t require premium gasoline unlike its stable mates. It gives around 17-23 miles per gallon depending if it’s a city or a highway you are driving in. This is less compared to Volkswagen’s Tiguan which offers 20-24 mpg.

This is a front wheel drive car but all wheel drive option is also available. It can clock 60 miles per hour in 7.9 seconds. This is a car meant for bad weather or rough roads. It is a huge car but when it comes to manoeuvring this car, it is an easy task and the experience is that of a smaller car.
