This thing is a blast to drive! The surge in power is incredible, and turbo power is progressive like a locomotive. It has tenacious grip, and the torque steer is under control. It corners great and safe considering it's a front wheel drive car with lots of power. Brakes are incredible! Just be prepared to fill up often, because you can't help but drive it fast and furious. Intoxicating!
Speed, cornering ability, brakes, and the 6 speed manual tranny is delish.
