The get-up and go of this vehicle is fantastic. If you truly want that "sports car" experience and feel, buy the six-speed manual model. It handles the curves like no other car. The instrument cluster is easy to read and manipulate. The seating is quite comfortable and the head room is adequate for those 6'1" or under. If you're looking for practicality, buy a Mazda6. If you are looking for FUN, buy an RX-8.
