Acceptable, but far from great

I like the looks of the vehicle, and the overall driver comfort and layout of controls is good, but the ride is clunky (always feels like a tire is about to blow), and the performance is underwhelming. For just going to the store and back, it's fine, but it's miserable to drive on longer trips.
