This car is simply outstanding when compared with other cars in the economy sedan category! The SE-R comes with many great standard features in addition to its horsepower, and looks appealing. The car offers plenty of zoom plus the benefits of a 4-cylinder--great gas mileage! (I average 27mpg with combined highway/city driving) The car drives wonderfully-nice combination of smooth steering and that "road feel".
The cloth was not reminiscent of children's cereal (YAY!) The silver detailing complimented the overall appearance. The gadgets are all have that nice "rubbery" feel rather than the "clicky, plastic" feel so common in economy cars. The console and instrument panel are easy to reach/read.
ABS should be standard. Soundproofing is minimal-the road and engine noise is intrusive at times. The sound system
is adequate, but not as crisp or rich at higher volumes. The sport-tuned suspension is great for performance, but is not appreciated on Pennsylvania's notoriously bumpy roads.
