The car has a surprisingly comfortable
and quiet ride, a dramatic improvement
over the '96 Cirrus I used to own.
The interior seems a lot nicer, too.
The car's engine is peppy enough for
most situations, but when you really
want to get moving quickly, the 2.4L
engine is somewhat taxed by the car's
weight. It never really feels truly
underpowered...but it never feels like
it has power to spare, either.
Smooth ride; quiet interior; amazing
refinement for a US car; perhaps the
sexiest 4-door shape in the mid-size
More power for both engines; long-term
reliability is questionable (my old
Cirrus had a lot of issues); some
interior trim pieces could benefit
from an upgrade to better materials.
