I was looking for a vehicle that got better gas mileage than my old Ranger, and ended up with so much more. This car has a great interior with very comfortable seats. It handles great on the road, but the electronic power steering is almost too good. You have to pay extra attention to avoid accidental drift. The extra amenities that come standard are incredible. I'm 6'4", so the power adjustable pedals and telescoping steering wheel are GREAT. And I was absolutely shocked at the acceleration. When you put your foot down, this car goes. And when other cars tend to whine out, this car just keeps going. So fast in fact, that when accelerating out of turns you must really be on your toes.
Great interior styling, great "european" feel when driving, fantastic gas mileage, and great acceleration.
Steering is almost too good, it's too easy to overdo it at highway speed. And such a plain Jane exterior, when there's so much under the hood.
