Lots of plastic is good, easy to clean. Manual transmission has more than enough power to get through the grapevine faster than anyone else. A bit tight in the knee area for tall guys, but plenty of room to make up for it in other places. Cargo space may seem small, but I just went on a 4 day camping trip with 2 other people, no problem fitting all our stuff in.
172hp impresses people who just see a small SUV. Great little 4-banger.
A bit more leg room and some padding on the armrests. All things considered though, these are minor.
