I absolutely love my car. It's an absolutely great car for the price (I could not find a better one in its class). Toyota did cheap out on a few things like some materials they use (like for seats) is really shoddy. But, it's cause they managed to make this car perform better than its predecessor while making the price cheaper. The car handles like a dream even for a FWD. It's not the fastest in its class but it's an absolute ball to drive. So far it's been reliable but I've only had it for a year so take that as you will. It does have some buzzes rattles and the seats have wear out parts but it seems so far the stuff that matters like engine is solid.
Handling (very tight steering and good feel), aggressive looks (looks to be inspired by Lamborghini), remote locks, very fun to drive, so far reliable, *gas*mileage*
Better quality interior and trim. Would have been better as a RWD (then it could be taken more seriously as a sporty car).
