I drove this car in my recent trip back home. Well there is a big turbo lag esp in the second gear. This is good when negotiating potholes but a pain when you want the vehicle to pull. The interiors are not great or not to my taste as i find beige to be boring. Lots of cubby holes in the rear so if you a guy who wants to hide stuff then u got lotsa place to do so.
second row seats should have been raised a bit as your thighs seem to be left in midair when travelling long distances. Gear shift is a bit on the harder side.
I liked the overall feel of this car though

This is an issue with almost all the GM vehicles. I face the same issue in 2nd gear when you need pull, its sluggish and irritating. I know this issue persists on Optra (Not sure about Magnum).
