Fantastic handling and steering.

Turbo engine offers quick acceleration.
Available electronics interface boasts large controls and is easy to use.
Phenomenal braking abilities, stopping from 60 mph in only 118 feet.
Attractive cabin with lots of little details.
Optional Alpine® audio system is fantastic.
All engines offer great fuel economy, especially the SE with the Aero package.
Manual and automatic transmissions available.
Exterior available in 12 exciting colors, including Citrus Peel, Header Orange, and Laguna Blue.
Base exterior styling is a little dull, but still more exciting than some of the competition.
Standard four-speaker audio system is disappointing.
Base 2.0-liter four-cylinder is one of the slowest in class, taking 9.9 seconds to reach 60 mph.
Driver seat may feel a little too high for some, but it can't be lowered.
Cushioning in seats is lumpy and can become uncomfortable on a long road trip.
Six-speed automatic is slow to downshift and often feels as though it has picked the wrong gear. You are better off with the manual transmission.
