Off-the-mark acceleration is tepid and the engine is loud during hard acceleration — highway speeds are reached at a leisurely pace. The hatchback’s passing power is laudable as it provides more than sufficient kick to move past that slow moving semi in the right line. All models come with drive mode control with a normal default…

    Statistics, stories from people of the time, and reasons why something happened, this is the formula for the majority of the chapters. There is nothing wrong with the formula, but it is very repetitive, and can dull the reader out after around five or six chapters at a time.
