This car is a dream. We've owned (all new) Honda: accord, civic, Pilot, Toyota Camry, Subaru Legacy, PT cruiser (loser), as well as an 08 Kia spectra, and currently a family owned since new 97 mbz e420. Of ALL those cars, Barring maybe the 09 legacy this car trumps them all in being an all around beauty and performer.
With the seats down it's a workhorse, with a car seat 2 adults can fit in the back seat. The back with optional tray is exceptionally organized and has plenty of room for your day to day runs. I have severe nerve damage to back and leg and this thing pulls off an outstandingly comfortable ride, note the exclaim model has better ride comfort
Exclaim has upgraded suspension for comfort and handling as well as sound dampening for a more quiet ride. Beautiful exterior and interior. We couldn't find leather around here but are very happy with the fabric they used. Cool to sit on without getting sweaty at all here in LA. Sound system is very good, love the UVO.
We average with 70% city driving in L.A. 28mpg. Very impressive figure. We love the 18" wheels in the ! model. LED lights add tons to looks as well. Our friend with an infinity M35 said he LOVED the look of the car (just last night :) Fits very tidy in compact spots something wonderful in LA. Rear camera is a plus. We can't rave enough. Go through internet sales to get price
Power seats standard on at least exclaim model. Option to have the 1.6L on the exclaim model. Option to have the radio display in dash as well.
