I just drove this car today, and I have never driven a manual.
It felt very easy to drive and very comfortable.
Although it doesn't have much power, I didn't feel like I was going to be run over by a big texas truck or not be able to keep up with traffic.
I did not sit in the back, but It looked like it could do a good job of hauling people under six feet.
The styling and comfort.
I think maybe a more powerful engine would make more people feel comfortable with driving it in America.
