As an artist in a major metropolitan city this little car is the one for me. It is zippy in traffic, holds a fair amount of cargo and is affordable to own. It is easy to load and unload. The higher seats offer a more comfortable enter and exit to and from the car especially for older passengers. Gas mileage is terrific. The instumentation takes a little getting used to but afterwards is very easy to use and see. A few of the plastic handles on the seat adjusters feel temporary and have come off.
Sitting up high in the driver's seat. The indigo ink body paint. The flatness of the folded down seats. The range of adjustments for driver's seat. ABS brakes. Sunroof.
Road noise. The sad cover for the cargo hatch area. Passenger seatbelt rattles againt the side wall when no one is in the seat. Need protection against paint dings in the parking lots. Need some sort of stable carpet for cargo area to protect against scratches.
