Being priced about 8K less than their Mini competition, this car proves an excellent value and backs it up with MPG and driving pleasure. It is quite literally impossible to be sad in this car. With a manual around the city it's the perfect car! Fun to drive, and as long as you're not afraid to rev the engine, it's peppy too. Great interior style is combined with very surprising space. My head hits in the back (6'0"), but the leg room is amazing for what it is. Although a bit bouncy on some streets, the composed ride is just right for a fun, "sporty" ride.
Design, sturdy interior, truck volume, fold flat seats, upright seating position, confident at highway speeds, assess to rear seats
Gauge cluster can be overwhelming, auto needs smoother shifts and better MPG (CVT?)
