Although the design is now several years old (2005 "freshening" was insignificant), it's functional and offers a fun driving experience. Great for tall folks (I'm 6'2") and super in the Ottawa winter, thanks to traction control and heated seats.
Handling, brakes and performance.
Rear seat cushion flips, but in one piece only -- a stupid design choice that seriously limits the utility of the 64/40 folding seat backs.
