As Secondwind has brought up the valid point before (either here or in person), that the Standard is more so aimed at younger people as a sports/sporty car, with gearing being aimed at performance.

I have to say, the CRZ might just be my favorite production car right now. No doubt at all if you don't include front rears. A nice splitter, maybe some performance mods if she needs and, and taller tires. Perfect. (in my opinion)
