Strong brakes with anti-lock brake system and dynamic stability control. Firm pedal feel.
Relatively firm suspension. Balanced handling. Responsive but not darty. Low body roll when cornering
The fuel economy is in the upper range of the norm for this class of car.
Probably mostly due to the economy tanking, and car dealerships wanting to move product, I got a very good deal on this car.
The salesman showed and demonstrated the various features of the car, then encouraged me to test them myself, including the anti-lock brakes and dynamic stability control. And no games at the time of the deal.
