This car suited my needs perfectly. I needed a fuel efficient car that was also fun to drive. I liked the configuration of the cargo space for when I transport my bike inside the vehicle.
I used to drive an Acura Integra GS-R, and while this has no where near the power, it does feel like it shares "DNA". It is "zippy" and handles great. However it does feel under-powered and twitchy on the interstates.
During the winter I mount Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2s all around (I bought an extra set of wheels) and with those on the car it handles great in the snow. Almost more fun to drive in the snow than the AWD Outback I traded in.
We bought this car for my wife because she doesn't like driving larger vehicles and was looking for something fun to drive. Bottom line is, she loves it.
Even though it doesn't have as much power as I'd like, it's a really fun car to drive with way more space than you would ever think just by looking at it.
Pros: Fantastic gas mileage, super easy to park/maneuver in town, and the Magic Seats are amazing for cargo.
Cons: Noisy ride, gets squirly over pothole and rough pavement, and the Bluetooth/AV tech doesn't work as good as Apple/Android car play.
Overall: a great value for not a lot of money.
