I got the "S" Model with the 360 degree package. It gives you $2,000 worth of extras for $1,000 (privacy glass, alloy rims, backup camera, spoiler, etc). I'm glad I opted for the 360 package. The bare "S" model is spartan. I still miss things like an outside temperature indicator and a driver's seat that adjusts upwards. Both are available with the "SL" Model. The base "SL" model is just a few bucks more than a "S" Model with the 360 package. However, most "SL" Models have other options and that's when the price starts to rise. I've put 4,000 miles on mine and love it. The CVT is excellent. Smooth as glass. Fairly good mileage. Lots of pep, feels like a 6 cylinder. And a Bargain!
The high seating position. The smoothness of the CVT. The pep. The mileage.
Sure would like an outside temp gauge in all models. Same goes for an upwardly adjustable seat.
