Perfect Small Car For The Price — This car was great both on long road trips and on short drives. The only complaint is that the cargo space fills up fast. I could fit 1 large suit case in the trunk with another small one. The car had pretty fun handling and never felt underpowered. It was a great example of what a compact sedan should be.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very modern looking interior.

Cons: Not a lot of trunk space.
