The list of things I love about this car is a mile long, and I can only think of one "con". The car has 360 HP, and drives aggressively and confidently in Sport mode. Turn the dial to Eco, and I reliably got 29 - 31 MPG on a 10 mile commute. Navigation works, Bluetooth audio and USB input options provide multiple ways to listen to music or podcasts on your phone, or take a phone call. The phone is clear, and I never had any complaints from anyone when I was using the integrated handsfree feature for the phone.
The air conditioned seats were a welcome addition to the vehicle in Florida, and the premium Bose sound system never left me wanting more. The handling was probably a bit firm for a near-luxury sedan, but still comfortable enough to make time on the road enjoyable. The car handled great in all weather conditions (except snow, which I never tried).
The only major "con" is the lack of trunk space in the hybrid, which is sacrificed for the batteries and electric motor. Still more than most sports cars, and plenty for an extra-large suitcase and some other travel gear for long vacations.
The car seats 4 adults very comfortably, and 5 is fine for trips of short to moderate duration. The car is very roomy inside, and the sunroof just added to the natural light when desired.
