This model remains one of the most competitive in its segment, thanks to its attractive design language.

It features a new look, new tech and is one of the roomiest in its class. In general, it’s perfect for families as long as you don’t need three rows of seats. The base engine model is still a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that produces 181 horses, while optional is a more efficient turbocharged 3-cylinder powertrain. We’re also hoping to see in the future a hybrid model to keep up with hybrid variants of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.
