Blings:

  • Top-shelf interior with cooled seats
  • Sync system is easy to use, even for a Luddite

  • Moderately athletic while still being a terrific highway cruiser

Dings:

  • Good thing Sync is easy to use, because the Nav system is rage-inducing
  • Ford spec interior components remind you that you’re in a $45K Ford
  • If you think you can squeeze into that parking space…you can’t
