Do you guys think these are too small? It seems similar in size to a prius. It was peppy, but not fast which is good.

It's now on my list of candidates.
Only get a manual. The automatic transmission was problematic on the Fiesta.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
