Pros: its, a head turner very strong goin up hills, very roomi for me that im 6'2'' plenty of head and leg room and huge trunk the bluethooth for answering calls is an excellent feature. it handles and ride is mutch softer than a porsche it looks like a porsche and performs very close to one. excelent gas millage 29mph for 5 cilinder car
Cons: the only thing i would add would be that the engine roars a little bit more when you step on the gas, its to quiet.
Overall review: its a great choice i was looking to get a new car for 4 months i tried all mercedes, bmw, fiats, pontiac ect. and in none i had the head end leg room i have in this car plus its head turner.
