    “Leather seats are available as an option for $2,490, which in my opinion is too much to ask for enough leather to cover two small front seats and a rear seat bench.”

    Did Paul Maric even look at the specifications? Did you do anything at all to write this review? The reason for the $2,490 leather seats that you neglected to mention is that the front seats can be individually heated with 5 different positions. In the right climate, this will be a much welcomed featured. For a car advice website, it’s pretty poor that you don’t mention that. Or that you say nothing about the optional sunroof.

    Harsh, but true.
