Mileage fantastic. low cost of ownership Side visibility is poor - has blind spot
Fuel economy - consistently higher than epa estimate Car is very loud, drowns out the bluetooth phone
Value - best hybrid of its size for the price Windshield wipers - no place for them to move water to
Cargo space when folding seats Engine is noisy when accelerating on highway
Eco awareness : provides feedback about consumpion and rates driver Not enough options - would have liked sun roof.
Control panel is pretty, easy to read and a joy to have Cruise control ride is not as smooth over hilly roads
Has enough power for small engine Blind spots just over each shoulder - you have to be cautious.
Driver's console, steering wheel controls Styling is very much like a prius - maybe needs better distinction.
Climate control placement - easy use for driver. Would prefer to open fuel door and trunk from inside
Steering wheel - very sporty & controls laid out nicely Wind noise - obnoxious & totally unexpected - howling
