Surprisingly roomy little car. Nicely styled. Acceleration is adequate but certainly not sporty. This is a very nice little car that has everything you need or want and nothing you don't need.
The overall styling and driver experience. Sophisticated and comfortable interior with nothing overstated. Toyota "gets" the car experience. Over the past ten months I've rented various vehicles.
None of the US-made cars I drove approached the level of cohesion Toyota had in its vehicles. It's some fundamental underlying element that shows in the final design. My personal favorite feature? The air conditioning is ice cold!
I'd love to see a full-size spare. The trunk seems quite large to me. I can imagine adding a full-size spare and a more robust small auto jack to the trunk. Those little high-pressure spares freak me out.
