Practical every-day car that handles great and has a few interesting standard features such as rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and Bluetooth. Overall, good value for money.
Handling and overall performance. Gas consumption is very reasonable (city: 11 liters per 100km; highway 9 liters per 100km). Integrated body kits with the nicely designed 17-inch wheels provide for decent looks.
Reduce noise levels especially wind noise. Should have a "power on" feature after turning off engine. Bluetooth language settings should be memorized to avoid having to reset almost everytime. More resistant plastics as current ones scratch easily. Better heat ventilation at back.
