The new model definitely feels more like a small luxury SUV, which I'm on the fence about at the moment. I can't speak for the back seat because I'm never back there, but I'd assume for a small person like me, it would be quite comfortable. For myself, turbo is worth it, I am a tad bit of a speed junkie and it seems as of late, nobody in this city can drive, in which turbo works out to my advantage. But with that being said, the n/a version is honestly super, super fun. For a 2.5L engine in a bigger body, it has quite a bit of power. Besides watching my fuel mileage drop like a rock because of the break in period, I myself have no regrets about said vehicle.
