    My friend, who worked at Toyota for 11 years and now works at Hyundai, drives a Sonata PHEV.

    In his words, the interior is "better than Lexus". I don't know if the Sonata PHEV is a special case, but from what have seen, I can't argue with him.

    I think it depends a lot on the trim. There's a very steep curve from base to top trim as far as interior features go. Base models definitely do NOT feel like Lexus interiors.

    My first impression of the CRV front end is a mouth that seriously needs to see an orthodontist.

    The CRV may be ugly to some, but I doubt Honda will have any trouble selling them. Just sayin.

    Its the generic ugly Honda face. To think they were pleasant looking when they first came out (1st and 2nd Gen Civics), same with the early Accord and Prelude. Then after that, they became more generic Japanese. Their response to looking too generic, seems to be more chrome decoration and insect like headlamps.

    CVTs don't have to feel odd or annoying. We have one in my wife'd '17 Subaru Forester and it does not have any odd habits at all. No motor boat or rubber band feeling. Also as far as 4 cyl vibrations, the old flat 4s on Subies had some low speed vibs, but they appear to have tuned these out. Very good low speed torque and responsiveness with the 2.5 four and CVT....

    It seems like as FCA is abandoning CVTs, the CVTs in general are much better in feel or the purchasers and reviewers are more accepting of CVTs.

    In the US, yeah, they're abandoning them. Other markets they're keeping them. It's interesting that FCA gave up on them just as outfits like Toyota and Honda and Subaru are getting their customers to accept them.

    My wife recently picked up a new Renegade Trailhawk to replace her Renegade North (Canadian version of the Latitude) with the 1.4l and manual shift. Her niece will be learning to drive on it and was really nervous about the manual plus an unbelievable deal presented itself.

    FWIW, the 9spd in her new rig is exceptionally smooth and slick. Best example I have driven yet! If the new Cherokees are as smooth, no one will be even mentioning CVTs.

    ...About as broad as it is wide. I'm sure we eventually will.

    I think it looks vanilla, as do all Hondas. Ties perfectly into their (lack of) styling. The Ridgeline is among the ugliest things ever conceived however. I posted a photo on my FB of the first new Ridgeline I saw in person and my frank opinion of its ugliness. I think I got over 70 likes.
