WHAT WE LIKED

Cheap for a big, seven-seater 4WD. En­gine has grunt to burn, is rea­son­ably easy on the juice, runs smoothly and qui­etly and is well-matched with the six-speed auto. A top tow ve­hi­cle. Ver­sa­tile, kid-friendly seat­ing in rows two and three and lots of load space. Voice con­trol works. Full-size spare.

WHAT WE DIDN’T

Cramped, un­com­fort­able driv­ing po­si­tion and re­stricted en­try/exit. Flat, un­sup­port­ive driver’s seat. In­dus­trial grade in­te­rior. Han­dles like a truck. Weak brakes. Prob­lems with MyLink, power win­dows and for­ward col­li­sion alert. High load floor. Needs more odd­ment stor­age up­front. No rear diff lock. Short ser­vice in­ter­vals and war­ranty.
