|Price as Tested||$47,925: 2.9-L 302-hp super- and turbocharged 4-cyl, 8-speed automatic, Platinum package, Technology Package, Blind Spot Information (BLIS) Package, 19-inch BOR Diamond Cut wheels|
Sleek, smart, un-boxy styling. Looks great on 19-inch wheels. Comfortable seats, luxurious finishes, no woodgrain. Excellent visibility. Impressive versatility from the super- and turbocharged 2-L engine: refined and economical (24/35 mpg) when tooling around the city with family in tow; neck-snappingly sporty when no one is looking — especially in Sport mode.
Reminds me of a supercharged Honda Civic, which I mean as a compliment, but which also makes the $50k price tag seem outrageous. “Drive-E”? Pronounced “drivey”?
I fell in love with it and was even thinking about buying one — and then I saw the $50k price tag. If you are in the market for a $50k sport sedan, don’t overlook this very compelling candidate. For what it is, it’s pretty much perfect.
