This baby was a pleasant surprise. We also have Lexus IS and now it seems that Lexus is totally not worth the money paid for it. Pickup is really not bad at all for such a small engine. Overall, it's a great commuter. Definitely a big bang for the buck considering its depreciation rate.
Gas mileage, smooth and controlled ride, leather, heated seats, cheap insurance.
More options should be available: power seats with memory, compass, HID lights, etc.
