The vehicle generally receives positive reviews for performance due to its smooth ride, but the four- and five-cylinder engines are underpowered. The Canyon has rugged look that most appreciate, but it doesn't fare well when compared to the Nissan Frontier. Substandard materials detract from the interior of the car, but some like the simple dashboard layout. The front seats are comfortable, but the rear seats are too cramped. Overall, for the price most buyers would be better off looking at some of the Canyon's competitors.
