I would actually recommend this car for someone who won't have people in the backseat very often. It is a small car and exactly what I was looking for (and more) for our second vehicle, but it would be too small for a family car unless everyone is under 5'5". My 6'2" honey can squeeze in fairly comfortably in the driver's seat, but only the dogs can fit in the seat behind him. It's perfect for zipping around the city and squeezing in small parking spots.

This car is a lot of fun to drive! I look forward to driving with the sunroof open any chance I get. It has some decent pick-up speed. It's hard to not go over the speed limit! Whoever thought of the marketing slogan for this car was right on point! "zoom zoom"
We love driving this car. The handling feels sporty, yet the ride is smooth and comfortable. The gas mileage surpasses that of some hybrids. We don't often chauffer passengers, but when we do, the back seat comfortably seats two. We have gotten three passengers in the back seat for a short distance, without it feeling terribly cramped. We enjoy the technological features as well.
