I know I'm going to get slammed for this, but... NO. And I don't mean that in a bad way. The Karma is definitely not a "driver's car" at all. You don't feel the road at all. There's no feedback thru the steering wheel, the accelerator pedal, or the seat. It's very big and heavy and not the most maneuverable thing on the road. So, "fun", no not at all.

But that's not a bad thing. This car is GREAT as a city car. It deals with stoplights and traffic better than anything I've ever owned because that's where its strengths are. It's got good 0-40 acceleration which is what you need in city driving, and it drives very straight and smooth. I really enjoy driving it around town for errands and the usual daily chores.

It's really the opposite of my Aston because the Aston is a pain in the ass to drive in the city, and it *hates* coming to a stop and going slow in traffic. Yet the Aston is an outstanding driver's car and is ridiculously fun to drive on the open road. So, I'd say the Karma compliments the Aston perfectly, but I'd never call it "fun to drive" in a million years.

I think there is an easy solution for the 'too quiet' for the Karma. It is easy to add sound than to remove sound in the cockpit. Karma can easily program a F-18 sound proportional to the engine rev or power output. Turn up that roaring base. It will blow your ears off. It will be more feedback than you need.

Personally, on a long trip, I like a quiet car with relaxing classical music. Arriving at my destination without fatigue from listening to constant droning of the ICE.
