I could only wish that it had a turbo. This thing is fun to drive and handles great. I drive a huge amount of miles and needed economy. This car fit the bill and provided some sport as well. For a subcompact it is very roomy. Handles well and has all the basics. Even without the power package this car satisfies the commuter needs at a fabulous price. I love filling up for 1/2 the cost of my minivan. The sport model gives you a little more in the way of handling. Just a great all around car.
Fuel economy is great. Get at least 36 on my highway drive doing 70+ . Handling is great and it's quite perky for the fuel economy.
Just a bit more horsepower. The sport model should have a turbo or more power. I think there are fuel efficent ways to do this. It could have just a bit more room inside but it is a subcompact. Power options should be standard.
