The car really has a pleasant howl
above 6500 rpm and the 6-speed makes
it a breeze to keep it singing. The
interior is high quality and elegant
in it's simplicity and execution.
While not blisteringly fast it is
quick enough to be fun and my mileage
has been in the 30 mpg range. I found
it to be faster and less expensive
than a similar cooper-s or celica GT-
S. Unlike some I feel the suspension
is plenty stiff and responsive, if you
want more try the A-spec
Sound- The engine sounds great- the
stereo sounds great and is intuitive
to use. Lots of content included.
Reaaly fun to drive. Great balance
between responsiveness and ride quality
Seat heaters, looks are a bit bland.
Auto down window on passenger side.
Optional navigation system. Sometimes
seems noisy but its worth it at WOT.
