Forget boring Civics and Corollas. This car is stylish and handles beautifully. Platform is based on the new, yet to be released Ford Focus platform and is also used in the new Volvo S40. Very lively in the handling department and the interior is a refreshing change from the mundane plastic seen in other cars of the same class. Who says small family cars can't be stylish.
Lively engine, steering wheel controls, excellent handling.
Would prefer an audible alarm as a low fuel indicator (rather than just the warning light). Indicator stalks may be made a bit stronger. Sometimes feel as if I may break them if I flick on them too hard.
