Truly a particularly tight and 'thick' car. Everything is over and it, and received at the last minute even navigation, it can not. At first I was not so fond of the back, but it is very beautiful in this color Steel Gray. There are very attractive 17-inch wheels with good tires flat below. It runs great, especially in the corners. Of course it is very different from our previous car Tucson, we because we sell the caravan, no longer need. Especially in the evening you can enjoy the beautiful blue dashboard lighting. Of the integrated radio, you can indeed expand, and then the radio remains just play. I have not found any downsides. Oh surely, there is only one key with remote on. Bit of a shame because an extra key is not inexpensive. I understood that the price is now adjusted after complaints. Even the seats are better than in Tucson. Yes and learn huh. (All you could also adjust the front up in Tucson driver) There is a lumbar support and steering wheel can be adjusted both in height and depth. Parking sensors are also on me seemed a bit excessive luxury, but is very useful when reverse parking. And the auto-dimming mirror I find very handy. Or the trunk is the same size as that of the Tucson I'm not sure (of Tucson, he seemed bigger) but you put the bags AH honor it easier. The shelf now prints the messages not flat. (At our Tucson we had the old shelf you had to open itself, and then right back down pl.)
You can drive well with the 1.6 engine and I find myself switching nice going smoothly. What is striking is that the brakes engage smoothly, which is the first kilometers getting used to.
It's a car I can definitely recommend.

Meanwhile, a further 8000 km, with holiday experience, the front two adults and three teenagers in the back to Marina di Venezia (yes in Italy). and I must say I do not want to lose him. It runs really so relaxed. But in fact the sound is decent at higher speeds. He therefore significantly more speed than our old Peugeot 206.Maar so packed neatly consumption was about 1 in 14, the Tucson did that last year one in 10.
Am pleased with the lakkeuze, this dark gray metallic gleam remains.
Funny thing is that the speedometer of the built-in navigation indicates a lower speed than the counter of the car itself. You settle your arrival so over long distances. But it also makes a difference in the fines.

what I do not really like is the attachment to the roof rack. In one way or another I do not trust it. There is a description in the box and if you follow everything exactly you have the idea that it just stuck. And how short you also have the rubber on it and how well you clean it, paint still damaged something.
