Sitting inside, the headroom and line of sight is higher than most other "little cars". Feels like a small SUV, mileage like a sub-compact. The long rake of the windshield, large roof pillars and long low windows gives one the feel of sitting in an aircraft cockpit. The engine has a lovely "throaty roar" to it when pushed to perform. Like no other economy car I've ever heard. "Smooth, Sleek and Powerful" are the best words to describe the feel of driving this car. I love it!
See this car in person. It just looks wild and wonderful compared to other "hatchbacks"! Take it out on the highway and give it some gas... Listen to the sound. Nothing like it.
The small rear window will have you looking twice when backing up, but I go forward most of the time, and this is a joy in this car.
