I've owned and still own a few late Mercedes and Bmw's Even with my german cars experience, I can definitely say THIS CAR IS AWESOME!. Period!
Yes, a few flaws, there are no perfect cars anywhere. but for the price you pay, the thing is amazing.
Brakes: ONE OF THE BEST BRAKES I EVER TESTED
Driving dynamics: I won't say its a BMW or a Mercedes, but its close, its wayyyyy over what you get from Toyota or Honda, but its still not a BMW... The price isn't either.
Steering: Precise and sporty, love it.!
