Overall, the dashboard looked well engineered. Controls just weren't jammed into comers or hidden out of view. The only attribute we did have a problem finding was the hood launch. After getting in touch with the owner's manual, we lastly found it under the hand brake.

The driver's seat could be adjusted front to back with a bar, and also there were knobs to readjust the reduced torso assistance. The driver's seat reclined better than a lot of wagons we tested. It additionally unwinded a little bit as well as used plenty of headroom.

The rear seat was comfortable sufficient for 3 people and, with 34.7-inches of legroom, a tag person wouldn't need to bother with feeling cramped. The 60/40 seat change was conveniently achieved with a touch of a switch, leaving plenty of area for long, large freight.
