There are 9 user reviews for the Grand Touring 5-Door trim shown below
- Comfortable, good speed, handles the curves, roomy, good brakes
- Bad torque steer defeats power advantage,suspension too stiff for some
I bought this car new 10 months ago based on magazine articles and my own test drives. For the most part I'm well satisfied with the car and it's a kick to drive fast. The very stiff suspension keeps it very flat in the corners and tossing thru chicanes is easy.
Other cars considered were VW GTI and Nissan Altima.
The downside is the torque steer. The driver can compensate without too much trouble but I like a straight line when I punch it
