Totally surprised with the snap that this 4 cylinder engine has. Wife feels very safe in this car; have been in pickups the past 10 yrs and ready to downsize. Toyota quality and reliability brought me to the car; retiring next year and this is the sensible solution to fuel economy for a non hybrid. Plenty of nooks and crannies to put things, net assembly and cargo cover have out of the way place for storing. This car gets there now, no problem getting up to and over speed limits; runs so quite and handles so well you can be up to 80 mph before you realize it. I'm a big guy and the driver side is roomy and comfortable, selected the liqui-cell leather seats for my disabled lower back.
Style, handling, Barcelona Red (candy apple red for us old guys) paint, roominess, quietness from road noise, unable to hear engine. A lot of research went into decision for new car and this is right choice for us.
Haven't had long enough to provide valid input for this.
