Ended up driving off with the sedan even though I was dead-set against, of all things, 4dr and Kona blue. Buttery shifts, sunroof, cruise and sync sold me. Couldn't be happier so far. Coming from a Scion XD it feels like a beamer! Surprisingly, it wasn't a rental but also had ~34,000 on it. Even gets about the same, if not better mpg than that tiny molar rattler! Blue is starting to grow on me too.

lol my R6 hums along on the highway at around 5000rpm. Then again the redline is 16.5krpm

I picked mine up w/ 37k mi for $16.5k. It was a rental. I was sketched out at first, but gave it a very VERY good look over. KBB has it pegged at a tad under $18K. It's almost fully loaded, just some features not there. MFT and Parking Assist. I'm assuming those were Titanium features. One thing I wish I had was heated seats & remote start. But no problems so far *knock on wood*. Loving it so far. Couldn't be happier.

Don't know if anyone else has mentioned...I surely am happy that I don't have to ride in the back seat of my '13 Hatch. Compared to my 2011 4dr SE, About 3 inches less leg room, and 1 inch less head room. But more hip room, which I guess better accommodates the ever growing American backside.

I have to agree. My girl has a '11 4DR SE and I had thought it was smaller in the back compared to my hatch.

I find the rear cabin space in the MK3 very comfortable, and I am just a hair under 6',
I suppose if I had to sit behind a 7 footer things would get a little squashed, but I think most compacts with a 7 footer in front would make for a tight fit in the rear cabin
