Sporty — Love this car! It picks up very quickly and handles like a charm. Great rear seating. The only down side is the amount of blind spots. Low visibility. The cargo space is great, too. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Speed, looks

Cons: Backing, blind spots

Overall:

A Fun Little Head-turner — It's a solid car. If you want something cheap, but sporty, this is the car for you. It also gives you plenty of room to upgrade from the base model later, so you don't have to put a ton of money down for options you don't really need.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great, runs great.

Cons: A bit small, and a bit sluggish. Not too "sporty" for a coupe.
