The exterior is quite pleasing. It looks robust in its shape but sleek in its lines, giving it a softly rugged appearance.
The roof rails end in a little tail that immediately draws your eye and makes the roof line graceful. The windows are large and offer good visibility even through to the rear, which can sometimes be compromised on small SUVs.
Even though this is classed as a small SUV, it doesn’t feel ‘small.' I like the way the rear doesn’t slope down, because it isn’t much smaller than a Mazda CX-5, but its boxier rear gives the illusion that it’s bigger.
The wide grille, as well as the large front and rear lights add to the overall curb appeal and this design should age well, which is always good for a family car you intend to keep for a while.
