Battle of the Xs
Posted: 30 Jun 2010
The quick and direct steering is better, but only adds to the EX's incongruous mix of dignified luxury and kick-in-the-nuts performance. It's a bit like finding out that Keira Knightley enjoys the occasional cage fight. Maybe next year's V6 diesel version will get the balance right, combining ride and economy in a way that makes more sense in a luxo-car like this.
We say: expensive crossover with a big heart and a luxurious interior. But it will need a diesel to make sense.
