Perfect commuter

Haven't had the car very long, but love it. I like the exterior styling and the interior dash and radio display are nice, just keep in mind it's 4 years old so not as fancy as a brand new car - but pretty good sized touch screen. Engine has more power than I thought it would. With 3 adults, I got up to 60mph within the on-ramp for the highway and merged without issue.


Most and best reliable easy to drive car!

It definitely met all i need with easy driving and parking thanks to it’s size and light weight! Less gasoline too which is the best!


A great econmical car

I like this car because its small economical and some safety features . I love the black interior with comfortable seats. The car runs really quiet and great on gas.
