Overall, a very good car. Love the styling, it's a real head turner. Good visability, though the side pillar gets in the way of good side visability when changing lanes. One annoyance worth noting - downshifting. I think the 5th gear is too low. They probably did that for fuel economy. When on cruise control on highway speeds, the car downshifts when going over minor hills and bridges. I wish there was an override.
Exterior styling - looks sharp! Good riding position. Controls nicely laid out. Sound system has ample bass. Decent acceleration.
Make the transmission not downshift so easily over minor hills, especially on cruise control. Also, offer a cassette and CD option in audio. Gated shifter tough to get used to. Audio system could use some mid-range control (not enough for my taste.)
