I loved the 2010 Alien model as I purchased it one year old for a great deal. I wanted the better fuel economy, the new 6 speed transmission, and the increased horse power. The new model has several improvement over the 2010. Its definitely quieter and my 2010 which did not have leather seating. The front facia is a great improvement with the LED lights and HID blubs are cool. Last thing better sound system (Infinity) and backup camera. Only thing the new model misses the mark on is the absence of a spare tire.
