Highs

  • Controls
  • Fuel economy
  • Interior room
  • Braking

Lows

  • Hesitation from rolling stop
  • Access
  • No power seat on LXS
  • Likely confusion between GT-Line and GT variants

Best Version to Get

The LXS comes pretty well equipped. Buyers who seek a more comfortable and supportive driver's seat should opt for the GT-Line (not the GT), even though it also comes with wider, lower 18-inch tires that compromise ride comfort somewhat.
