Overall Rating

Awesome Car!

It's a great value all around. While it doesn't get the gas mileage it was quoted, is still very efficient. It also has a lot in the way of "the extras" that we all love, Bluetooth, steering wheel controls, and lots of space and comfortability in an economy sized car. I absolutely love it and enjoy driving it everyday!


  • Value: Lots of bells and whistles for an affordable price.
  • Safety: This car had so many which is important me since I'm driving a small car on the road with so many large trucks and SUVs.
  • Technology and Entertainment: There is so much in this car. The blue tooth let's me play my mp3s, there the steering wheel controls, and Sirius access and free trial.


  • Fuel Economy: I was expecting a bit more in the way if fuel economy. There's a significant deviation from the quoted fuel efficiency to what I actually get.

Great car at a good price

I would recommend this car, very good gas mileage, very good in the snow.


  • Weather Versatility: Handles great in the snow, since I live in CT
  • Styling: Love the way it looks, very sporty
  • Fuel Economy: Very good on gas, my last car was a small SUV, not good on gas at all

Really nice car overall nothing fancy

Nice styling, runs well, smooth drive, good on gas mileage. Koup model is very sporty.


  • Fuel Economy: Good mileage
  • Ride and Handling: Smooth ride
  • Styling: Koup is sporty


  • Cabin Noise: Very loud on acceleration
  • Interior Space: Tall people will have a hard time behind the wheel or in the back seat
  • Technology and Entertainment: Very minimal features offered in this car. Not even a built in compass. No navigation. But it is Bluetooth compatible
