I leased this vehicle just last month. It's a truly amazing car. Certainly not the best out there, but it's very close. It has all the creature comforts one could want in an entry-level luxury vehicle. The engine is very well built, and the SportShift transmission adds a real flavor to driving this car. It corners admirably, accelerates quite well - 0 to 60 in about 6.5 seconds. And it's all rather affordable.
Definitely the SportShift transmission...but the sunroof and heated seats are damn cool as well.
A little more headroom for the driver would be a good improvement.
