Lots of fun to drive. You'll hear people talk about the low torque, but there's plenty of power to bring you to 60mph very quickly. Fast, fun car, with Honda efficiency and build quality. Typical civic interior design leaves a bit to be desired on the luxury end, but you get what you pay for. Car is very capable on the road and when driving aggressively through corners and on the highway. The sound this car makes when driving, is something that truly must be heard first hand to fully appreciate. All this with real world MPG rating supposedly around 28-32. The car and all its components feel solid and high quality.
6 speed manual, large tach display, stereo, the sound of the car (exhaust & engine), Sunroof, rims. Every minute you're in this car you feel sporty and ready to take on anything the road throws at you (various conditions, & other drivers wanting to race to the speed limit from the light).
Seat comfort not all that good. Trips over an hour can become uncomfortable. The seat works for a track run b/c it keeps you in place, but for daily driving over 50 miles, not the best. Should include the fuel gauge feature from the civic's/fit's. Revs 3000 @ 63mph(seems a bit high).
