A great car for a daily driver. Lots of features even on the base model. What you give up at the high extremes of performance you more than make up for with daily usability. Much more comfortable in normal conditions than any of the other 'hot hatches' (GTI, etc).
Looks great, drives great. Comfortable seats, high quality materials and great build quality.
The cup holders are in a very poor location in the manual shift car. having a water bottle or large cup in them makes it difficult to get to the shifter safely.
