Also, very roomy for a convertible. Negatives would be no blind spot warning system, limited visibility out the rear glass when the top is up, and the owner's
manual recommends premium gas which is more costly than regular. Turning radius isn't great compared to my wife's Ford Escape. All in all, it's a nice convertible and I'd recommend it if you're not looking for a "muscle" car like a big engine Mustang or Camaro convertible and the back seat isn't torture chamber for passengers as the previously referred to cars.
I agree with you about this car being stylish.
Limited visibility of the rear glass? Isn't there the rear parking sensor that would help with reverse parking or back out? or it doesn't help with that.
Thanks for the other recommendation of the other cars. I'll check it out.
I assumed there was ample of rear passenger leg room because of the auto sensor:
if it touches something, saу the back passengers knees, it stops and moves back forward about an inch to prevent an uncomfortable squeeze to the back passenger.
Did you get to try that function out?
