This car has an incredible amount of torque, and moves when you put your foot on the accelerator. Goes 0-60 5.9 seconds. Rides like a BMW. Very tight handling. Push it too hard though and the computer is watching over you. The Barbera Red Metallic (Maroon) is the one thing people love. Creases in the hood design break up the flat sheet metal and add a touch of elegance.
Took a friend today for a ride to a meeting and afterwards mentioned to him it is a diesel, and he looked at me quizzically. He had no clue after spending 40 minutes in the car. (radio off, windows up.) He said it seemed to drive like a NORMAL car. I asked if he had a few minutes so I could take him for a spin, and he hopped back into the car. After the first fast acceleration, he commented MAN, when it shifted into second, it sure took off. Dude I told him, the car starts in 2nd and that was the shift to 3rd, ... just to be clear. I then dropped the car into manual mode accelerated from 1st gear, and he was stunned at the acceleration. This is not my dad's diesel he said. I would never have know.
Me either I said, going back to driving my sports/high MPG car.
