Zippy little car

I disagree with Edmunds on “not as sporty as it looks” and “performance.” This car is for driving on normal roads and not racing around atop a mountain like we see on ridiculous tv commercials. My car accelerates instantly and has plenty of power, e.g., changing lanes to get past other drivers, driving uphill, starting from park to drive. I often drive unintentionally at 80-90 mph on the highway because it’s so easy to do with this car - smooth acceleration and ride. There are some features I don’t like - the charging ports are located inside the back of the center console. I have to twist and almost turn around to either plug in the USB charger or connect my cable to the port (I don’t leave it plugged in when not in use). There isn’t a dedicated button or switch that I can find to turn on the heater. After much searching, I toggled the AC off and the heat started. Overall, it’s a nice and comfortable car. The compact size is perfect for my short stature.

Coming from a 04 Ford Focus that let water in every rainy day and had no A/C or frills in sight, I feel like I’m in the cockpit of a space shuttle in this car! I tested a TLX at the dealer when I went to pick this car up and it felt like trash compared to this, truthfully. I don’t agree with edmunds at all on the performance standpoint I’m not really sure what they meant there?? If I wanted a racer I would’ve gotten a q70 or an m3. I bought this car because it’s *more* than quick enough to get me arrested, the interior is incredibly handsome for the price, nothing breaks on this thing! And it’s so comfortable I’ve gotten drowsy on long rides before from sheer cozy comfort. This thing ripped through 6 inches of snow like it was a Jeep Wrangler! I was honestly flabbergasted as I’ve only ever had FWD vehicles previously . The only issue I’ve had w my car since I bought it was a loose negative battery cable that had to be replaced because it couldn’t be secured, which costed less than $10 and under an hour to repair, I’ll take that any day over the bi-weekly $500+ repair my old ford had for literally years. There’s a real good reason you can’t find more than 10 good examples of these in a 150 mile radius, go test drive one yourself, I’m sure it’ll be more than enough for you if you aren’t overcompensating for something.
