This car manages to be quick when you want it to be, cruise when you want it to, seems to work well in the snow, and holds more than enough stuff to fit our needs. Fuel mileage so far of around 25 mpg overall. Comfortable seats, great for long trips. Very progressive throttle tip in helps to drive smoothly. Engine can be a little buzzy at times, but packs plenty of punch when you want it to. Steering effort is way too light, but turn in is crisp, and it's great for long highway trips, maybe not so much for back roads. Well-designed, intuitive interior with fantastic sound system. Only problem so far is a rattle in the dash, fixed under warranty.
Throttle tip-in, surround sound system (upgrade), seats, fantastic seat heaters, decent fuel mileage for its weight and power train configuration.
More natural steering weight, more storage compartments, fewer engine vibrations, better exhaust note, smoother automatic, more suspension travel.
