    I do not like the looks of this sedan. The back is pretty bad.

    Much better than the Fiesta. That sedan has a really tall trunk for a car of its size. I cant see anything behind me in it. You almost HAVE to have a backup camera.

    It's ugly, and I don't say that often. But the car itself looks to be top notch.

    It looks so much larger than the Aveo next to it, as well as less roller skate like. Looks good and probably even better with larger wheels.

    I like the overall shape, but those tail lights are awkward.

    I like the front except for where they put the bowtie (should be higher in the top grille IMO). The butt is butt ugly.

    Definitely a significant upgrade both in size and appearance.

    I like it for the most part, though I don't know why they made those foglight hole covers stick out so much. Grey plastic plugs like that always look kinda goofy, so it's a bad idea to make them even more pronounced!

    Funny how large this class has become... we have the Sonic and Fiesta and Rio and Accent and Fit and Yaris and Versa and Mazda2 and Swift (ha!)... am I missing any? Does VW have a car in this class in North America?

    Nope, Polo never made it over. It would have been to expensive according to many, but it is supposed to make it over in the near future, possibly with some cost cutting most likely coming by the way of interior quality. Don't quote me on it though. Surprisingly we have it here in Japan, but Vdub has become extremely popular the last 5 years here.
