Review

The good is the styling,both interior and exterior. The bad is it's woefully underpowered. The good is the radio is really good. The bad is you get stuck with a Bluelink system that you can't turn off even if you decline authorization. (Commercials on screen for the life of the car because Hyundai says so) The good is the little 6 speed shifts great The bad is its still hooked to the underpowered engine. The good is you get roadside assistance. The bad is you'll need it because there's no spare tire The good is this is a nice economy car. The bad is no matter how it looks, its still just an Accent that went to the beauty parlor


Best Features

Styling, Radio, MPG in the 32-35 range


Worst Features

The Bluelink system should be an option only and not forced. 20 more horses under the hood

Review

I just turned 200 miles and the car is great. The shifter and clutch are light and accurate. The car is quiet and the ride is excellent. The car feels solid over bumps with no sqeaks or rattles. I thought the car would ride hard because of the 18" wheels and low aspect ratio tires but it is truly comfortable. I'm coming out of a 2008 Mini Cooper Clubman S w/manual and this car is so much better. The Mini was disappointing because of torque steer, rough ride, numerous squeaks and rattles and noise. The more I drive this car, the more I like it. The power is not as much as in the Mini but the car is surprisingly fast for the power rating. Drive this car before buying anything else.


Best Features

Ride, shifter, clutch, solidity, looks, seat comfort


Worst Features

Spare tire and jack or at least run flats instead of compressor and sealant, heated seats, rain sensing wipers
