It is a high performance vehicle and very responsive. When I first bought it, I squealed the tires a few times accidentally. It gets up and goes really well. It has a black interior and is difficult to keep cool in the summertime. Although it is a 4-door model, my husband says the interior is smaller than his Toyota Avalon. It is very easy to see all around the car as there are very good adjustments you can make to the seats and mirrors.
