I believe this car is arguably the best in its class. It has a lot of impressive standard features, extensive customizable options, and solid safety ratings. It's efficient enough for the finance conscious buyer, and sleek enough for the young crowd. You can customize it with navigation, racing peddles, interior colored lights, XM satellite radio,etc. As far as safety, traction control and stability control come standard. The Honda Fit and Nissan Versa don't have those features. The electric steering is also very smooth. The soundsystem is sweet and comes equipped with 6 speakers, MP3/WMA capability, & an iPod/USB jack. Overall, it's the coolest and most efficient car I've owned.
High-tech sound system, fuel efficiency, handling, cruise control, sweet pop-out cup holder on the passenger side, folding and sliding back seats, first-aid kit, signaling exterior mirrors, two glove compartments, zesty 1.8 liter engine.
It would be nice if arm rest and floor mats were standard. Also, the cargo space is limited when compared to the Honda Fit and other competitors. The fact that the rear seats slide or fold forward makes up for this to some degree, though.
