The standard models run a mpg of 15 when driven in the city and 23 for highway drive. There’s a slight difference with the Premium model because it runs a mpg of 22 in the highway. One advantage of the DTS models is that it only acquires a regular type of fuel unlike other vehicle competitors in the market.

Prevailing protection measures of the models involves a stability control, antilock disc brakes, active head protection, and side-front airbags. According to the crash note, it only gained a four- star rating in frontal, side, and rear impacts and five- star rating for the protection of the driver.

There is plenty of space available for the head and legs of the passengers. The cargo space at the back of the vehicle is suitable for long equipment. One of the interior highlights is the large, comfortable seat at the back. The controls are handy except that passengers in the rear seat have limited control of the climate and entertainment function. Some disadvantages of the DTS involve difficulty to achieve parking and high quality materials in interior design is lacking.
