I drive the S, so it has a sportier look, but nothing sportier under the hood. I don't like that this model is larger than previous generations. At times my compact parks like a small bus. OK gas mileage, though I admit my mileage is 90% city (averaging around 27-30 mpg, 34-37 when I do drive highway).
I love the extras: sunroof, alloy wheels, ground kit. Where I live, foglights are useless, so I could have done w/o, but they add to the look of the sport model.
Make a true sport model w/ 6-speed manual, more torque. Tighten the suspension. Foldable mirrors. I've lost one already, and I haven't had the car a year.
