What Works (pros):
Comfortable ride; quiet cabin; respectable handling; strong and efficient engine; it comes with a manual!

What Needs Work (cons):
Forgettable styling; manual recline seats.

Bottom Line:
All of the comfort, serenity and luxury of a full-size sedan with the more sensible dimensions and fuel economy of a compact one.
