Great Car — Great car. I use it as a summertime daily driver. I have done light track use with it as well. The car is loads of fun if you enjoy driving. Allows you to truly drive, every imput is transferred to the road. I average 32 MPG with the manual and I don't baby it at all. The back seats are more of a decoration but I don't need them so that doesn't bother me. Comfortable on city, rural roads or interstate. Very happy with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun factor, handling, MPGs

Cons: storage

Fun At First, Not Good For The Long Term — The Car isn't practical for everyday use, for highway or long trips. It is a good city car but is also very small and gets over taken by bigger traffic. I would go for a bigger car that has the horsepower to compensate for heavier weight.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling is perfection, can even drift it without a problem.
power is very nice as well, tectronic shifting is fun.

Cons: loud cabin, stiff suspension feels the road, small interior takes a toll on the driver

Great Sports Car Feel — Love the handling, looks, and driving experience. The best I have ever had. No breakdowns or malfunctions and only dealership service was scheduled service. This car would be great for a single, couple or new family as I have had baby seat in back and up to a 5yr old no issues. The trunk handles a couple weeks of grocery if needed, as well as just a racquetball bag.

Pros: Handling and gas mileage

Cons: not a 4 person family car

Silver Scion Frs — I truly love driving this car other than shifting in traffic. Very rare to see on the road this distinct, sexy shape. Low center of gravity and small steering wheel give you the feel of being in an expensive race car. I have owned a Porsche 912 and the FR-S handles much like that. Not great in snow. All the garage attendants think this is the best car in the lots.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent handling and sleek to look at. Manual transmission is the way to go with this go kart. No distractions. All driving fun. Large capacity with back seats down. Can even fit four tires laying flat.

Cons: Small front cabin. Radio unexceptional

An Excellent Sports Car For The Price. — This is a small car that's good only for two people to ride in. It's got practically no room for passengers in the back just like most sporty cars. The FRS, however, is a great small car for drivers like myself who likes to drive a smooth and great-looking car without blowing his budget. It's internal components and engine are made by Subaru and Toyota designed its exterior looks. The cons for this car is offset by the fact that it's a very reaonably priced car- below $30K. No car afficionado in his right mind can really demand any more high-end/extra features from this car. Toyota and Subaru is marketing it to the average middle class sports car enthusiast who can get by with just 200 horses and just enough room for two.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very sleek-looking, responsive and has superb handling. Very goood gas mileage and is a very gorgeous-looking car. The cheapest true sports car that you can buy- less than $29,0000.00.

Cons: Very low profile. I have to be extra careful when going over humps and hills, uneve surfaces, craters and rocky ground.

No real back seat area at all. Drives nicely but veey few bells and whistles for the price tag. The genesis coupe is the more luxery car and has more room in the trunk and a full back seat.

Front Seats Ranked 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium RWD better.
"The front seats mold to your body and they have lumbar, seat up and down, lean and tilt to get that cockpit feel. As a 54 person I can reach the pedals and see over the hood well in this car"
