It is versatile. Fun and practical.

Fast, fun, and reliable. It is good on gas and I have had no problems with it mechanically. Although it is small I find it to be a great family car. Best car I have ever owned.

It feels different from other brands, and it more European in handling versus other makes.

It has enough power and room for most of what I need. It would be nice to have more features, and easier to load a bike, but overall I like it.

- Gene F

The best hatchback around

Great car never had a problem with it. I get good fuel economy and travel about 500 miles a week with a 50 liter tank
