I have enjoyed this car very much thus far. It handles exceptionally well and has good power, but it could use a little more.
The steering is quick and responsive and the shifter feels very good. The brakes tend to change their feel from solid to a little soft while driving. Having 17 inch wheels standard on the 5 door is very nice and they add to the handling abilities, but the ride remains comfortable. Overall, the car feels very solid and rigid.
The interior is very nice. The red and blue lighting is gorgeous as well as the red/black seats. The rounded electro-luminescent guages remind one of something from a Porsche boxter. Overall, the interior quality is far above what one would expect from a car in its class.
The stereo sounds good, but it could be better. The fact that it's part of the dash limits aftermarket modification. The steering wheel controls for the radio are a nice touch.
It has so much room! But yet it doesn't look or feel like a full size wagon in any way. Rear cargo area versatility is wonderful!
The exterior of the car is different from everything else on the road, so it does get noticed. The clear lens taillights are very nice, and the projector headlights light up the road well, but the fog lamps don't really do anything noticeable. If you need bright fog lamps I'd recommend adding aftermarket ones with stronger output.
All in all, this car is a joy to drive and to look at. I highly recommend it!
