Handsome And Hard Working — Perfect balance between a hatch and a wagon. Sporty, yet sensible. Sleek, clean design inside and out. It is hard to look past the very intentional minimalism, but fortunately that is what makes this car great. It is a "fiddle free" environment which leaves the operator's hands free to do what they should do in the driver's seat... drive. Bluetooth phone, radio and function menus are all conveniently placed on the steering wheel. With the T5, it is probably best to have both hands on the wheel. The turbocharged in-line 5 will push your back into the seat well beyond 60 mph and it is a well balanced joy on the back roads. Plus, the throaty rasp of the exhaust and whir of the turbo are nearly lyrical. Somewhat annoying that the computer only talks to apple products... but nothing is perfect.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of fun to be had without having too much fun

Cons: No leg room in the back seat
