INTERIOR

The first thing I noticed upon entering this car was the sporty-looking black-checkered seat upholstery inset in a black suedelike border with sexy red stitching. It reminded me of this awesome pair of shoes with black patent leather and red corset lacing up the back of the heel. As a mom, the very next thing I noticed was all the little pieces of kid crud


crumbs, scraps of paper, etc.


and dusty footprints that show up so perfectly on the black interior.

The front seats in my test car were heated. However, I didn't test them since it was approaching 100 degrees the entire time I drove this car, but with seat heat and all-wheel drive, it's too bad I didn't get to drive this sexy red beast in the winter.

In the backseat, there's a center armrest, but it didn't have cupholders or a storage cubby in it. The rear cupholders are located near the floorboard on the backside of the front center console. Those cupholders are unreachable for little ones in child-safety seats, but that's not really who this car in intended for. Large bottleholders located in all four doors make up for the backseat's cupholder location. There are two cupholders in the front row.

Although this is a little sedan, the amount of trunk space is impressive, even for family-sized loads. That's because of the layout of the car's double-wishbone rear suspension, which allows for a wide, deep trunk. I had tons of stuff in there while taking my girls to a slumber party, in addition to three small sets of golf clubs. Impressive!
