New owner at this point. I am a driving enthusiast and chose this car for its performance and handling. In that regard, the performance and engine come across perfectly. Acceleration is awesome and handling is tight. I'm not quite sure where the "unconnected" steering criticism comes from, I feel that car is very responsive. High speed performance is particularly nice. What I was surprised about is the level of features and refinement. The car is loaded and everything feels well thought out. The primary shortcoming is in the small back seat. A car of this size could have more room.
Acceleration and handling. The NAV system is also very intuitive.
The back seat is too small and there are no cup holders in back either.
