Aggressive 2.3-liter, 244-hp turbo 4-cylinder runs like a V6. Sic-speed auto has slapstick option. Fast, comfortable, quiet, excellent handling in the twisties. Simple climate controls, heated seats, elegant instrument package, Bose stereo.


Credit card proximity key a nuisance. Combination stereo.rotating navigation screen is annoyingly counter-intuitive. Highway mileage disappointing at 19 mpg and with premium fuel required.


Styling should appeal to reluctant crossovers; it’s more sports sedan than wagon. Active AWD a bonus.
