For an SUV that costs more than $75,000, there are some unusually cheap pieces. The textured aluminum knobs controlling volume, tuning, and fan speed look nice but feel flimsy.
The shiny black buttons surrounding those dials (for things like temperature and seat heating and cooling) look and feel cheap, too. And the “chrome” trim that outlines the center console and the touchscreen is really a cheap plastic that feels like it could fall off in your hand.
In most vehicles we test, hard plastic near or below the knee is fine. But again, for a $75,000 luxury SUV, this many hard materials on the door panel and center console is almost inexcusable. Alternatives like the Audi Q7, BMW X5, and Mercedes-Benz GLE do have some hard plastic, but not this much.
