- strong, spirited engine. great sport ride. decent fuel economy. a fast car that no one will suspect.
- pretty tight cabin. loose shifter. monsoon sound system is muffled-sounding, not crisp at all.
Got this car as my commuter, and it's been a great joy. Wide power band means you don't have to constantly switch gears in stop-n-go traffic. And if you want to get around someone, they better look out. You don't even need to downshift to pass easily, but if you do go for a lower gear - this thing boogies. It LOVES to run. Even better, it hugs the road through the twisties and just keeps asking for more.
The engine sounds terrific - it goes from a purr at idle to a gratifying roar under hard acceleration. The heated leather seats make winters enjoyable - they get hot fast. The deep seat surrounded by the high bolsters keep you snug and tight as you wind through country roads, but provide enough cushioning to keep you happy.
Overall, it's a posh AND sporty ride. it's not the fastest little car out there - though it really moves when you want to. it's not the top of the line luxury car in the segment - but it does pamper you and is elegant. What it does do the best is offer a perfect blend of car-enthusiast performance AND a high level of luxury appointments.
You can't beat the high-quality interior and overall performace for the price. Definitely a sweet ride.
