Highs

  • Ride
  • Fuel economy
  • Easy to use controls
  • Braking

Lows

  • Engine noise
  • Seat short on lower-back support
  • Plug-in hybrid only provides brief electric propulsion and battery robs cargo space

Best Version to Get

For the best value, we think the 2.0i Premium is the right choice for most buyers. EyeSight is a worthwhile option which can be had on all trims except for those equipped with the manual transmission. 

The plug-in hybrid version is based on the Limited trim and comes more richly equipped with a power driver's seat and leather upholstery.
