I'm not sure the car was ever marketed as a family-friendly vehicle. If I were 18 with a few dollars in the bank and looking for my second car, I'd consider it. But I'd probably pass it up in favor of an older WRX/Evo/GTI, simply because the cars are built on a more trusted platform, have more power, and are all turbocharged from the factory.
This thing is definitely an odd niche car, same as the CRX was.
