I'll be honest: it doesn't look too bad, even if it does seem to be overly inspired by the Mazda Protege5, right down to the way the name is presented. The simple, clean look is a pleasant change from the usual forays into hideous overstyling found at the annual SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show. An engine shot reveals a "supercharged" denomination, and one may assume that such a tuning enhancement would turn the stock 138-hp Spectra into a serious sport compact. Also: excise that polished chrome strip on the hood, and then we can talk.
