I sat in one at the NY Auto show. Good looking car for sure, with the right wheels and color. Materials are definitely squarely in between a GTI/Passat and an Audi A4. It has a lot of legroom and crossover-rivaling cargo space but the low roof makes getting in and out difficult and the high rocker panel hits your leg as you’re getting in and out.

Has a lot of features but the MSRP is the real killer her. No point even considering unless they take at least $5K off IMO. And looking at the competition- Stinger GT/ Regal GS/base Audi A5 Sportback/Acura TLX perhaps it might take $10K off MSRP to sway some in its favor.
