Just got it a week ago and getting more amazed at overall difference - which I'd never known if I didn't drive it over a 100 miles. Especially 'different' inside - feeling comfortable and even cozy. It literally keep dragging me to get inside. A feeling I've never felt before even in more expensive luxury vehicles. Also, even it is under-power (just over 120 hp) and kinda noisy upon excel, the other standard features are just rocks(more than Hyundai or Kia except warranty)! Also considering 2010 record of top safety pick and reasonable price(same as Kia forte), how come there could be another choice? '100% Made in Japan' is also a great add-on for a peace of mind watching TOYOTA crisis.
Decent full standard features with reasonable price. Exotic and cozy feeling of cockpit. Bunch of cubbies. Firm and stable build quality.
Lack of center console. Sunvisor - useless. Noisy sound of engine approaching 50. Annoying wind noise on freeway.
