Versatile and convenient car for city living.

Hard top convertible is very convenient, Turbo engine is thirsty but reliable and powerful. The option to shift from Automatic to Manual transmission is very handy, but some of the construction feels cheap, a few plastic parts have already broken without much use.

- Sam Y

Gets me from point a to point b. Has a great sport mode, but also always has something wrong with it

I love that it's small and fashionable, has great pickup. It's a convertible which I love. But I have to take it into the shop often, there's always something wrong with it

- Lauren A

Beautiful car but water leeks are an issue.

Have had problems with leaking. Replaced door mechanism expensive battery problems. Good side is fun car to drive and turns heads on hard top convertible.
