The powertrain has to be the most suprising feature of this vehicle. Also, the independent rear suspension contributes greatly to the superb handling of this race inspired road rocket. The interior is almost as aggressive as the exterior, and in that regard, is just as appealing. Overall, this is the best vehicle that I have ever owned.
I love the responsive 4 cyl. with the 5 speed manual transmission. The design of the car was also the major reason that I purchased the vehicle in the first place. The 6 speaker stereo is awesome as well.
Give the 2.0 liter DOHC more power and torque to play with. the optional 5 speed is well capable of handling the extra performance.
