Innova, Xylo et al, watch your back!

WU Likes: Handling belies its size and looks, high speed stability, easy to drive, good visibility, ABS brakes on all variants, ease of ingress and egress, comfortable row three seats, turning radius.
WU Dislikes: Overall looks of the vehicle, position of the gear lever, barely a multi-function steering wheel, very sluggish at low revs, no split tailgate, sliding door window is fixed giving second seat passengers no scope of opening the window for fresh air.
