When my daughter told me she wanted this car for her 16th birthday, I thought "surely you can do better than a Civic". My opinion of the previous Civics was not very high. I researched it and was impressed with what I found, so I was game. Then I test drove it! We bought it that night! I love, love, love this car! It handles well, is easy to drive, has power when you want/need it, it feels good and sounds good! It has standard features you would normally find in a luxury car...radio controls at your fingertips, moon roof, premium sound. I just wish we would have ordered one with the navigation system. It's compactness sometimes makes it hard to "fold" into/out of this car!
It's sporty feel, the bright red digital speedometer, auto up/down window, trunk space, tight steering, that 197 hp, awesome stereo, cool wipers, and I love the power this little car has!!
