  • Has a unique exterior styling that's not too cutesy.
  • Fun to drive! Effortlessly zips through town and snuggles curves.
  • Lots of headroom, seating position is low and side doors are high.
  • Interior is stylish and space-efficient.
  • Small! -- barely enough room for a small gym bag or overnighter in storage area behind the driver & passenger.
  • Loud -- mid-engine makes listening to radio and talking difficult.
  • Very rigid suspension -- makes it fun to throw around, but a headache to drive for extended periods of time.
  • The top took some manual strength to put up and the latches were sometimes tricky-- not advised if you have long fingernails, muscle strains, or broken bones.
