Powered by a four-cylinder engine that makes 197 horsepower at 191 pound-feet of torque, you certainly won’t be beating other comparable sedans like the Mazda6 off the line. But this car wasn’t made for breakneck speeds. Its 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway were made to get you to and from work safely (and affordably) with a five-star safety rating that offers comfort to all owners. Newer suspension has been added, enhancing the overall comfort of the ride and improving upon turning performance. You can always upgrade the engine to the turbocharged model to gain a bit more horsepower, but it’s probably not worth the upgrade cost. A spacious interior and improved passenger space are both pluses, even if the backseat is still a bit squishy on the legroom. The optional 7” MyLink infotainment console is decent, and includes a touchscreen. Standard six-speaker stereo system, Bluetooth connectivity and optional leather seating, sunroof and backup camera with collision and lane warnings are convenient features to consider. While priced affordably, the 3-year/36,000 mile warranty should be upgraded to offer the added peace of mind that your long term investment in a new car will be worth it.
