Pros Cons
Amazing speed & handling, love it Storage is completely lacking - none in doors, very little in console
Love the acceleration, manuerability when passing It has rear seats but they are not useable.
Drivability - turning radius, quiet ride, handling Stereo system is disappointing - especially considering its premium
Steering wheel because it feels and looks top notch Headlights: they are reflectors. at least use projectors.
Handling and stability in all conditions, fun to drive Brakes feel mushy; they should feel sporty
Vehicle exterior - excellent styling without being overly flashy. Entry doors cannot lock when car is warming up!
Engine and transmission - very smooth, very powerful, very economical Park position requires use of brake to avoid movement of car
Performance - the car has great acceleration The ride is a little on the stiff side.
I like the smoothness of the gear shift and ease of clutch operation Power seats/memory - really miss not having this with 2 drivers
Handling - so much fun to drive - so peppy & powerful Navigation system is rudimentary. after market gps is much better
