    I looked at basically all competition. And, as suggested in the article, got a loaded Dynamic, to get the best of the car -- at least IMHO. The real clincher for me was: show me another 4x4 with MagneRide... and I'll consider it.

The large U.S. spec headrests are a safety requirement but ironically they make for a dangerous situation. The smaller European headrests work perfect without taking away rearward visibility but I haven't been able to find a source for purchasing them as replacements. Also I don't know if they fit the U.S. rear seats.

    In my wife's sport, the rear center headrest looks like the Euro head rests for the rear seat in the Evoque. (Can lower almost all the way). When she's not looking I'll see if it fits.

    Set your side view mirrors properly so you can't see door handles unless you actually glance to side and I see a very complete panorama . The side vehicle sensors are wonderful on this car as well!

    I've tried that but the small inner headrest doesn't fit into the holes for the large outer ones, – what would have been a simple solution.
