Great value for the money

by Pat from Arlington, VA | February 06, 2020

Needed a commuter car small enough for the whole family to drive. I picked up a 2018 for a great price. Many I saw had lost a lot of value. Love all the high end features. I am 6 foot 3 and the comfort and fit are great. Hooked to my phone I get great radio. Heated seats etc and so nice to have. Yes it's slow. But I'm ok with that.
