If you want a 34 MPG Mixed driving car that has a ton of storage room then this car is for you. Low insurance, Great exterior styling, nice 5-gear auto. You are trading off a bunch of interior features like the steering wheel audio controls and overall interior quality. Also the tires on the 16" rim are very unusual so finding replacements = not a fun time with no enough options. I like the car for what it is. A to B daily commuter but as a real "car" that you should be proud of, it is definitely not.
Peppy feeling goes away if you turn on the AC or if you go up a hill. Not enough HP for that. Interior lower console is horribly designed, no real armrest or storage. The middle console area is just horrid. Interior materials = very cheap. Road noise pretty bad. No steering wheel audio controls
