I bought this car for my mother and initially felt bad that I could not afford a nicer car for her. This completely changed once I got a chance to drive it! With the CVT, hatchback, upgraded interior this car is absolutely wonderful. I drove over 600 miles in one day and felt comfortable (I'm 6'4"!) and relaxed. The CVT is extraordinarily smooth and efficient and had no problem with power up mountains. This car is awesome, a great commuter, and I managed an average of 34-35 MPG during the trip!
super-smooth CVT, spacious interior with headroom for tall people (front and back)
the upgraded 16" wheels/tires don't handle rough roads smoothly (otherwise fine), front end is a bit low (you will scratch it ;)
