That it is a real sporty car and it should not be overlooked.

I like the aesthetics of the vehicle and its angles. The price range is fair for the caliber of vehicle. Also, really fun to drive and really sporty. Only dislike is that it is not really gas efficient.

- Raul G

The gas is sensitive. So you have to press very easily.

I love the build of the car. I do not like how old it is because it has a lot of miles on it and needs a lot of upkeep.

- Kara B

Acceleration is fast - unexpected for a luxury car.

Small but powerful. Nice design and easy to drive. Smooth to drive and comfortable interior. Sporty yet luxurious.

- Mind Y
