This car has the styling, fit, finish, and aesthetics to beat the more expensive brands. I felt the BMW was lacking in refinement and the MB was over priced. The CVT feels like a manual trans when starting – cool! The sport suspension is fantastic but BETTER BRAKES are needed. The top works well. The interior has plenty of room but the cup holders are less than ideal. Radio with RDS and in-dash display along with driver computer is really neat. Love the red gauge displays. Buy this car!
Styling, interior fit and finish, driver’s controls and view, sport & lighting packages, performance and fuel economy in one complete vehicle that is fun to drive. View is great and rear view mirrors are excellent in size, location, and ability to see traffic.
Add larger brakes! The sport package with 17 inch wheels should have much larger brake rotors. There is plenty of room available. This car needs to stop with more authority. Better cup holders. A pop-out two-sided holder like the MB C series would be a good choice.
