Performance out of the 1.5 litre is very good. Powerband and gearing excellent. Brakes good as is steering. A little shifty, left and right on the freeway at high speeds (over 70 mph). Interior great quality and instrument panel good. I like the "free" driver side so I can put a gps. Surprising large interior and confortable for 4. Wish it had an electronic trunk opener.
