The lightweight manual transmission base model, despite not having significant amounts of power, is still fun to drive. Although its somewhat tall stance and small brake rotors may suggest otherwise, this vehicle is capable of some very spirited driving. Interior cabin space is very good, visibility is excellent, and highway mileage is impressive (I often average 38 mpg on mostly highway driving). I would reccomend this car to younger drivers who want a fun small car that can still comfortably carry their friends and their overnight bags.
Gas mileage, cabin space, low maintenance costs, good aftermarket support for those of you who like to modify your cars.
Long shifter throw, somewhat stiff- backed front seats, engine noisier than in Honda/Toyota economy cars.
