Just what I want in a car, sporty, quick, fast, fairly practical. Great handling - no pull like some front wheel cars. Comfortable and fun to drive.

Exceeded my expectations. Fun to drive. Speed and power when you need it. Above average gas mileage. Bonus the car only requires regular gas. No comparison to the Honda Civic Si I traded in.
