Ha! Been a while since i've read newsweek- didn't realize they did car reviews now.

A few reviews have called out the lazy transmission and outdated interior/electronics as well. Didn't understand this sentence:
"Even in the sportiest drive mode, making the oomph of power as G-forces are exerted on your body a mundane event. In this way, it's much like an electric vehicle, which doesn't use a transmission, but rather delivers straight power."

That's kind of a backhanded compliment to say that it delivers power like an EV...

Anyway, I suspect this is a car that I'd probably struggle to actually pull the trigger one due to some of its shortcomings. Would make a great used car though. Will be next to impossible to find since i"m sure they'll probably only sell like 10 of them.

DeMuro does a review. It's...long.



Holy crap, this car has been around since 2012?

At least it has a spare tire.

Just watched his review - a bit short on facts compared to the other one. For example
-the car actually does have a touch screen now
-he says pricing isnít available when other reviews have already mentioned the trim levels and pricing

But yeah it is basically the same car from 2012 although they did a big facelift last year
