Test drove today

Ok I'm a 6'4 over 300... I fit
Car seats extremely comfortable. Overwhelmed with all the controls. Touring model.
Super quiet unless you step on it. Turbo....
Steering was very responsive.
Everything felt very solid not like my 6 year old Prius.
Trunk is huge, carpet is cheap...
The price of the Touring is a bargain with all the safety features.
The 7" display is the best I've seen. Color was outstanding.

MSRP was the price. I'm to call back in morning, gave a story about a 2:30 appointment to show car. Ha.....Document fees, rip off.

Trade in is my kicker, may bite the bullet, they only had one car with touring edition and it was the dark gray.... Looking for lunar gray..

Another dealer in morning. Has a lunar gray coming in.

What was your impression on the speed/acceleration? Did it put a smile on your face?

Also, what's your overall feel on the interior? Did it seem like luxury or just borderline at best?

this question goes to anyone else who test drove as well

I just test drove the EX trim. Fantastic feel. I felt like my 2012 was too low to the ground, but everything feels right in the 2016 even though it's even lower ! But I'm still torn between Black or WOP !! grrrrrrr

How is road noise ? Is center arm rest functional, with respect to resting an arm on it while driving ?

Arm rest was nice....
Road noise was non existent.. Quietness of ride really surprised me.
Very smooth ride

Sounds like the only downside is a cheap carpet but that can be easily fixed with a trunk mat. Maybe bargain a bit to see if they can waive the document fees.

That easily happen with a new car that you've only been in for so long, the real test will be with weeks into ownership.

Ditto for my experience. 250 lbs, not quite so tall. LOTS of headroom, easy in-out. EX 2.0 had very good acceleration. Road noise? What road noise? Noticed wheel wells were lined with sound absorbent material, like my Maxima.
