Owned this car for over a year now. I had test driven the LS but the LTZ is a class above. I agreed with Edmunds (bland interior for the LS), but found the LTZ felt totally different. The leather wrapped steering felt much more comfortable, and the rest of interior did not feel cheap. Same with the wheels etc. I never read the manual much, so I keep finding new things in the car. When cleaning I found the audio volume control on the steering on the underside of other audio buttons. Recently I found out I could do tap-shift. I could not figure how to operate the +/- buttons earlier till I put the car in L coming downhill - it was so much fun!
Adjustable gas and brake pedals. Remote start. Chrome wheels. Heated seats. Controls on steering. Tap shift. Sunroof and skylights at the back. Removable and washable cup holders There's tons of small well thought features
Place fog light control on steering - not where I cannot see it. The traction control button is also in a bad location - accidentally keep hitting it when reaching for things. Simple standard audio jack in the stereo for MP3 players
Love the car; chose it over small SUV's and have no regrets. Loads of standard elements like remote start and automatic headlights; hatchback can be reconfigured to haul about anything. Small drawback is the 20mpg mileage with the 6 cyl engine.
Remote start, heated seats, compass in rv mirror,interior storage compartments; rides like a full sized sedan
Improved gas mileage or perhaps a hybrid in the future models
