This car has been a very pleasant
surprise. Equipped with the Power
Premium package, there is not much left
to be desired from a driver's
standpoint. Seats could be a bit
firmer, adjustable steering wheel
should be able to move a tad lower
(when seat is lowered to max, and the
wheel is extended). Center armrest is a
bit awkward. But the car handles
extemely well on the street, and if a
blast to drive. The clutch action is
very smooth, and it's fun to put the
ZX3 through its gears on a windy road.
The dash design is unusual, yet very
logical and useful. All the controls
are well marked and easy to reach.
Feels a lot more expensive than it is,
like driving a smaller European sports
Handling, styling, quality of interior
controls and lighting, very good audio
system, very smooth clutch, thick
steering wheel, low-profile 16"
Adjustable steering wheel doesn't move
low enough, armrest/console should be
larger and lower, clutch pedal
positioned better for heel'n'toe
driving. Better seat materials, more
durable and firmer, better lumbar
support. Dimmable hi-beam indicator,
larger sun visors.
