Understated cool. 250 hp is plenty. AWD, rock solid handling, enormous brakes. Comfortable front seats, simple dash controls, Bose stereo. Good visibility (Jaguar XKR could learn a lesson here), square steering wheel and automatic rear spoiler fun touches.
Tire pressure monitor already acting up, bodes ill for electronic future. Center info panel intrusive. “Padded cell” back seat pointless. Automatic transmission (whatever you call it) will be a hard resale outside of Sun City.
Not the icon it was. Mechanical miscegenation. Wide nose mimics Nissan 350Z, curved tail morphs Porsche Cayman. Maybe a better car, but not a more iconic one. The original is a tough act to follow, after all.
