2.5 TS waggon. 4 spd auto.
I've owned Hondas and Mazdas. This is the most solid and well built hatchback I have owned. They call it a Sport Waggon. I feels very sporty in 'round town handling. It darts in and out of traffic far better than my accord or 323 ever did.
Fun! Fun! Fun!
And I don't feel guitly about it. It get good gas mileage and costs less than a similaly equiped Honda.
The peppy engine delivers smooth steady power all the way to highway speeds. The handling is very sharp and precise.
Better lumbar support is needed. I am a tall man. The Japanese designers did not have American anatomies in mind when they built these seats.
