NormT 5pts Stylish, fun to drive, easy to see over other cars ahead, quiet is about what others have said and I have to back it up with my 2013 Encore AWD. Plus the fuel economy is tough to beat with almost 40 mpg per tankful. The handling an braking are phenomenal for the street and parking lot turns. It loves high speed sweepers tossing everything not firmly mounted flying in the car. It is great fun! Even more now that I have added a Trifecta computer tune to give it more pep and quicker shifts.
