Could be better
Hard plastics at the base of the Gear selector are scratching.
Gas milage could be better.
The 2.0L motor is annoyingly slow off the line. (Auto-box).
The sound system is the major disapointment. Good to look at, but that's it. The worst thing is that there's almost nothing you can do about it. Impossible to replace or improve on without major surgery (as it seems to be linked to A/C controls somehow). The dealers here are not interested in offering any options. (The versions in Japan have a large selection of alternative audio components.)
Space, fit and finish, and traction all good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
