The interior: Standard cloth seats. Not super comfortable, but not awful. Space is great, everyone fits comfortably, and the trunk area is great for the dog.

Driving: It's...fine. The shifter is pretty long, and it feels...fine. The clutch actually has a pretty decent feel and grab point. Around town, it's...fine. On the highway, it's definitely lacking. You're not going to be passing too many people in thing until you can get some momentum going.

The tech: Bluetooth and decent infotainment experience. Not much in the infotainment though, and every once in a while the car wouldn't connect to play my music, even though calling was connected. And Spotify occasionally showed song info, but generally just showed whatever the first song was when I connected. Oh, it had a backup cam. Cool.

Value: Cheap for an all wheel drive SUV. Decent fuel economy (generally 25-26 mpg in mixed driving). Runs on 87 octane.

If you need utility and/or all wheel drive and you just prefer manual, this car is...fine. For me, going from a smaller car with better driving dynamics, it felt lacking.
