Reserved, but not boring. Classic, flowing lines that look good from any angle.
Simple controls, perfectly laid out for easy accessibility. No electronic gadgetry - just basic knobs for climate and volume control. Nice contrast in dash material textures. Great looking seats. Pedals nicely spaced, but would be better with aluminum covers instead of rubber.
Averaging 32 MPG in mixed driving (60% highway, 40% suburbs).
Surprisingly quick for just 160hp, but then the car only weighs about 2800 lbs. Revs very quickly. The 5 speed means less shifting in traffic, and its action is typical Honda goodness.
Nicely weighted, communicative steering puts the car where you want it. Very balanced chassis makes fast turns fun. Feels tossable and always ready for the next curve.
