We're still under the 1000 mi. break-in so no speed records yet, but even with mild acceleration, you can feel that this little wagon has a dirty little secret that is eluded to only by the big air scoop on the hood (which really works by the way - this is no poser!). Supposedly this is a 7 sec. To 60. Not terribly fast, but nice to have in a wagon when you need it. The interior is well designed and comfortable. The engine with the turbo is noisy! You are constantly reminded that its there! Drives very well and smooth - handles good and does not feel like a cumbersome SUV. Great turning radius, which I am really beginning to appreciate. Nice stereo. Overall a very surprising car!
agility, speed (acceleration), interior layout, all wheel drive (though you don't feel it), turning radius, overall drive and performance for the price is great.
don't like the electronic "beep" when locking/unlocking the car, no power windows after ignition is shut off, remote start is quirky, unlock functions are quirky (again that "beep" noise! ugh!), horn is wimpy - very wimpy. But the important stuff works well.
