Dated interiors aside; the mature ride & handling, coupled with the solid build, and a motor that sounds like fun make a very strong case for itself. I can deal with a few omissions in features - most of which can be got after market, and with the amount saved - probably better quality too (seat covers, ICE, 16" tyres, etc.)
The 6 year extended warranty only goes to help!



Same here - but in this case, it just about works because of how good value the car is.


I am new to this forum and reading this short form in multiples conversations. Can anybody please explain what ICE is?

Thanks in advance. Enjoy your ride

Hi. ICE stands for Internal Combustion Engine: basically all the petrol and diesel engines that we see are ICE engines. Guess this term is now becoming common because of increasing prevalence of the alternative: electric cars.

ICE is abbreviation for Internal Combustion Engine. You may find it under audio section also, there it means In Car Entertainment.

Perfect! Thank you, Pavi.

In Car Entertainment is what I was looking for.

Sorry for the confusion, but you've got it spot on. In the general realm of Automobiles, it refers to the engine; but in the case of after-market add-ons it means in car entertainment.
