Can't Really Say I like The Looks Over The 451, but do like the updated technology. Sorry, this is a Failed in my Book!

Cool

IMO, the new one looks like an over-eating hamster with its mouth stuffed with corn or something, and I'd be tempted to start looking for a previous model demo next year when the new one should become available here, so that I can drive the much more petite-looking 451 as long as possible. May even spoil myself with a passion cabrio...

I know the current transmission isn't the greatest, but I like the option of being able to switch between manual most of the time and auto when in a long queue of bumper-to-bumper traffic. Another reason to get the passion, because I've just noticed that it has quite a bit more "twist" than my pulse, which would mean considerably less shifting!

Happiness is when, after about three years of ownership, you look at the gallery photos of your own car model on the dealer website and you can't help but smile at how cool it's still looking!

MSRP for the Pure coupe is going to be $14,650+destination/delivery. 5-speed manual is standard/no charge but the 6-speed double clutch automatic is a $990 upcharge.

So, the pure sees a $2k price increase from its price back in 2008. I can only guess what a cabrio would cost.

Of note a 2008 US Pure did not have A/C, power windows, cruise control or even a radio.

Cabrio is gonna be April of 2016 so there's plenty of waiting for that but it'll likely be just over $20,000. Overall there is a $2,000 price increase but it comes with a lot more options. Pure coupes now come with bluetooth, power steering, cruise control, power windows, LED daytime running lamps, new turbo engine, new transmission, 4" wider, and a handful of other features I'm not remembering right now. It'll be a little more expensive but more of a car than the previous generation.

Pure still has manual mirrors. Passion, Prime, & Proxy have the power mirrors standard though. Everything else is correct.
