The panoramic sunroof with shade opens up or sideways.

I love this car, he even has a name. I bought it new and it is black with red interior. It has full feature package and a huge sunroof. That had a recall but it passed the test. This year 2012 was the first year it came out. It gets app. 36 miles per gallon and the style has maintained its looks into the current models of this year. It has euro wheels and special rims and I would buy another.

Don't expect city driving gas mileage to be as high as advertised.

I like that it's sporty looking, easy to park and that it gets pretty good gas mileage. However the gas mileage is not what was advertised when I decided to buy the car. I don't like that too feel every bump in the road. Bigger cars have smoother drives. Also the factory installed battery was very small and I had to jump it many times until I put a bigger battery in the car.

Fun little functional Ride

Fun sporty little car with great gas mileage! Hatchback with fold down seats for hauling large items. Third door on the passenger side is great for passengers in the back seat to get in and out as well as accommodating my Granddaughters car seat. Comes in regular and turbo versions. The tech is exceptional even for 2018! Insurance is pricier however.
