Overall
Pros Cons
Gas mileage is excellent! The driver's seat needs lumbar support
Looks and quality are first class! When going 65 mph with windows open it hurts your ears.
Good response with new 6 speed transmission. Trunk space limited due to small size
Instrument that gives average mpg Visability out rear window due to large c pilars in rear
Storage and cupholders in front Dealer support. they have no pride
Exterior styling - nicest in its class Air & heat dont get to the back seat very well
I love the hand-sfree capabilities with voice activation. Cup holders too far back in console
Gas mileage topped out @ 46.5 mpg Tires - size is not available in many brands, and very pricey.
Looks - sporty, wide, looks like it's moving when it's not Position of reverse gear in manual transmission
Engine noise is very quiet Side windows leak- no rain guards available
