I will start with strong, mighty exterior design, thus, attention on the streets is guaranteed. The interior is comfortable with plenty quality features. This fun to drive sedan comes with an impressive safety department. The safety ratings are one of the highest in its category. As for the competition, I will mention the Dodge Charger, Toyota Avalon and the Volkswagen Passat.
