Excellent handling, 143-hp, twin-cam, 2-liter, 4-speed auto, AWD, a/c. air bags galore, AVA discs all around, power windows, mirrors, remote locking. Back seat OK for adults, luggage space matches Ford Explorer with seat down, AM/FM/CM/MP3 stereo, well organized dash. 100,00-miles, 7-year warranty.

Dislikes

Gas mileage – 24/30 is marginal in this category. Seat belt buzzer disgustingly annoying.

Verdict

Brilliant, loaded package at a bargain price. Mist be domestic market standout, vehicles this small don’t offer these options in the U.S. Destroys Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, and Nissan Versa, which feel much cheaper and only have 2-wheel drive.
