AS TESTED PRICE: $49,410
DRIVETRAIN: 2.0-liter DOHC turbocharged I4; RWD, eight-speed automatic
OUTPUT: 241 hp @ 5,800 rpm; 258 lb-ft @ 1,650-4,400 rpm

OPTIONS: See below
PROS: Slippery shape and a handful of wild color options
CONS: Turbocharged four doesn't match its speedy look
The curb weight isn’t a small number -- more than 3,700 pounds -- and this boosted four has enough power to get going, but it’s far from thrilling. There’s a little lag from the turbocharger -- don’t try to take off in second gear -- and it really needs to hit the midrange to feel any notion of speed.

I agree. I think the price will definitely be what'll draw people in. What I'm wondering is how the transmission will hold up for the excessive weight and lack of power
