    <Count that as a 3.5 star review>

    General idea about a mod is decent, slightly bigger 800 series with dirt road aspirations.
    Car design?
    Well... it clearly is an 800 series that was first scaled up in Z axis and then modified to look different, body proportions do show that, to tell it in different words its kinda like a Ssang Yong Rodius with ETK styling

    So now maybe a little bit about Jbeam?
    Steering linkage is very weak, sure it survives just driving around just fine, but once you get to for example some light offroad, steering linkage likes to break.
    Now onto powertrain shall we?
    Its set up quite well, porting most of the stuff from the 800 series does make sense, it works quite well... One thing regarding powertrain which annoyed me to the point I decided to write this review after all is how the "all terrain" system is set up. Instead of using only Traction controll to brake wheels which loose traction, it mostly relies on limited slip diffs which make this thing a little too capable offroad. Of course, I know why you did it... its cause its actually pretty hard/impossible to actually set up TC to work like it should with the base game code, since when diagonal wheels loose traction the thing just shuts off, especially with wheels straight and in 4wd/AWD vehicles (for FWD it works quite decently from what testing I did when trying to set up an offroad TC mode for a different mod), but in my opinion you should have went the more realistic way of open diffs + kinda working TC instead of doing everything you can to make the thing act like its on lockers.

    Solid base for a mod, will be interesting to see what comes out of it in the future.

    P.S. cleaning up the parts selector and parts names + writing better descriptions of the configs would be appreciated (took me a while to find a spec with air suspension working.

    phenomenal. obviously it has it's bugs, but they'll be ironed out. interior is a bit lacking for most german suvs as of late, maybe try experimenting with something like the audi virtual-cockpit? suspension feels perfectly set up, great job to everyone involved.

    Its just what this game needed: A Modern Fullsize German Luxury SUV.
    Quality is top notch beside of a little handful of bugs and room for improvement on suspension travel and strength. I just hope this doesn´t get abandoned because its too good and important for that :P

    Okay, to start this off im really REALLY happy that we are finally getting a modern CUV for BeamNG Drive, my issue with this mod is that the standard options feel pretty, unrealistic the Base car is a RWD borrowed 2.0L T and the single trim above THAT is a 3.0L N/A straight 6 with limited slip locking diffs!?? in the real world a BMW X3 or the merc equivilant wouldnt even be given that even from the aftermarket scene. and the N/A Straight 6 feels very out of place in this crossover, id say the same 2.0L Turbo with different states of tune would work better (in fact theres a upgraded turbo you can fit to the 2.0L motor with 257HP and 308 pound feet which is way better then the 3.0L N/A motor). IMHO the Straight 6 should only be reserved for the TT sport with turbos, Besides the heavy unrealism there are some other quirks id like to bring up.

    1. front bumper on the base model doesnt appear
    2. the sterring rack is extremely frail and even jumping a curb and very low speeds is enough to bend it WAY out of shape.
    3. higher profile tires on top of the existing ETK rims would be a nice addition as the car like low profiles feel out of place on a plastic cladded crossover like this
    4. suspension on the base model is WAY to wobbly and soft and on the TT sport is WAY too stiff.

    Glad it's finally released! Pretty good except I feel like the wheels are a little too fragile, and maybe create a way to turn off the rear running lights?

    First of all, congrats on the first modern SUV. I’ve enjoyed it but had a few problems.

    1. The thumbnails are a bit strange, as they are at different angles from eachother and some dont even have thumbnails.

    2. The base model does not spawn with a front bumper

    3. The jbeam isn’t the best. Mainly on the roof.

    I also have a few suggestions for the mod...

    1. I didn’t notice a roofrack. Perhaps you should add one

    2: More configs would be nice

    3: extra plastic cladding for the all terrain addition modification.

    4: maybe some taxi skins or ride sharing.

    Overall, you have made a very awesome mod, great job guys.

      Great to know, i was making sure all configs worked? oh well, ill take a look at it when i can... Got an update waiting for approval that fixes half of the issues such as the suspension and gauge lights so look forward to that, about the random parts names, its just something with the stuff that synsol made and me, going to resolve that later.

    Overall, a really refreshing and nice modern SUV. However, there's a few things that affect the overall fit and finish of the mod. First of all, the front end of the car has a few issues, such as a bumper being removed before the final release but was not removed from the configs, the skidplate not being removable, the suspension collapsing just a bit too easily, and the engine breaking a little easier than it probably should. Moving along, there's a few places that the model just doesn't really line up/has gaps, most predominantly in the rear doorpanels and passenger window. Lastly, the part selector has a few more errors than it probably should. The errors include having parts selectable that do nothing (i.e. "All Terrain Package"), a few name issues, and skins that don't work being able to be selected. Again, this is a really great mod that adds in a new vehicle that is really fun, but these issues to stand out a bit.
