I voted for sporty, here's why:
The car is classy a-plenty. Even if you deck it out with all sporty packages, it looks more classy than any of its competitors. Yesterday at work, three co-workers were gawking over my Lava Orange MZ3 HB, and they all said it was a clean looking car, nice but with an edge. Last night, I used the car to haul home an exercise machine. While loading it, the sales guy from the store kept asking me about the car and delaring that it is so cool and expensive looking. He remarked that the fender flares looked made the car look like "Arnold in a Tux"
I think this car, the way it is designed, is meant to be a sporty automobile. From the chassis, to the suspension, to the engine, everything fits well for spirited driving. I don't think this is the car to be decked out to the max. If I could find one, I'd take a winning blue MZ3 with ABS/SAB/SCB, Leather, and that's it.
Caught a Civic Si guy staring at my car today on the way to work. Yes, those 17's are stock, yes my Xenon lights are real, and yes my hatch is faster than your hatch.
