Great value with plenty of creature comforts
Excellent power, especially considering the good gas mileage. Pulls well at all speeds.
Very well equipped car when fully loaded. It is basically under and entry-lux, but it has some features standard that are optional on much more expensive cars, such as the 6-disc in-dash CD changer.
Very spacious interior and large trunk. For an idea how big the trunk is, I couldn't fit a 20" TV in its box into the trunk, but it was just by a centimetre.
The interior is nicer looking and better put together than most cars in general, let alone its main competitors.
The car could be slightly quieter (engine, road noise from bumps) and the suspension could be slightly better, but these are minor points.
Traction control, ABS brakes, wide-set stance and fairly large tires make this car quite capable in Canadian winters.
The sun roof is confusingly small and the button is oddly located and not auto-open.
Gauge cluster and climate control (dual climate) are very bright (adjustable for night driving) and easy to read. A real pleasure to look at.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
