I like it. Much broader potential application than the original, and MUCH better looks (imho).
I'm gonna break the usual mold of hybrid hate and say this would be the perfect vehicle for my wife's driving habits, and I wouldn't be the least bit embarassed by driving it.
Now, how about the pricing against Mazda5, Rondo, and/or upcoming cars like the Orlando and CMax?
Edit: Just realized it lacks sliding doors here. Forget everything I said above. Without sliders, it's just another face in the crossover crowd.
