Cute, economical, but expensive
The automatic transmission is plain awful. The gear ratios are terribly selected, and because of that, the engine is really noisy due to high RPM. If you like this car go, with manual.
The visibility is very limited. That's why they used blind spot mirror inserts, I guess. It is like sitting in a bunker.
The finish is good. Fuel economy is OK for a car of this size. Because it IS a very small car. Very limited interior space. I am 6ft 3inch and getting in/out is somewhat difficult. I always hit the wide plastic on driver's door.
The car looks pretty good. But hatchback only. The sedan should be banned from production. But that's me.
Conclusion. If you really like this car - go for it.
But to me, there are better cars out there for the same money. Because this car is incredibly expensive for what you are getting. I would say Nissan Versa is a much much better option in every aspect.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
