What a fun little car.
I don't know why I like it so much in spite of its sluggish acceleration, body role and bizarre low speed transmission behavior! Despite what Ford marketing will have you believe this car is a compromise.
But it's on I live with without regrets.
I found the back seats in this car perfectly adequate and more useful than the big brother Focus.
I'm averaging 38 mph in mixed driving.
Gas mileage, engine refinement, exterior and over all sporty drive feel.
More lateral leg room for the driver, at least get rid of that intrusive cup holder.
The Sync system and controls could be more intuitive. Valet keys would be nice.
More HP and/or low end torque would be nice.
