  1. ^Will this trounce the ford ecosport?

  2. price is not reasonable...better get juke or HR-V , Rav4.

  3. Now it looks like a large Chevy spark, or a Ford Ecosport.

    Yeah crazy asking price...

    You can almost wander into Subaru territory and get the XV, a proper crossover.

  4. Looks great but the price is astronomical. You can get a crdi Tucson or Sportage or PPV at that price

  5. 1.4m? Id rather get the all new xv than this sh*t that will drain you when this break down

  6. This car looks better than the old one it replaces. But the pricing fails big time. I doubt many will buy this.
