This is a very fun/fast/comfortable sedan



General Comments:

This has to be one of the most comfortable, easiest driving vehicles that we have ever owned. My wife drives 200 km a day for work, and it is very efficient mileage wise. We are getting 8l/100km with average speed of 88 km/hr (city and highway).

We only have one model in Canada, I think it is equivilant to the Aero, 2.3l Turbo, 260 h.p.

The only options we have are ventilated seats.

For $42K CAN, it was a bargain, heated seats, (front and back) moon roof, 5 spd man.

We love this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
