I have owned a B13 Sentra "Xer" for a decade or so. An Xer is an XE with all the guts of a drowned salvage NX2000 swapped in. 

I love it. It won't win a drag race against much, a modern car will out handle it, its a bit windy and buzzy on the highway, but all those issues are so easy to forgive all that after ten minutes.

So, to my problem: The best word I can use to describe it is "Zippy", and that makes me sound like I was born before WW2...  Gotta sound cooler, by jiggers.

Eager. I love that word to describe underpowered cars that are still a blast to drive. My miata was eager to please in any way it could, in a u-turn, on an off ramp, in a traffic circle...

Perky. Who can argue against perky being good?

"Willing" or "enthusiastic" might work.

Fun, peppy, lively, and enthusiastic.  All good qualities in a car or date.

If R & T TV is to be believed, everything decent or above should be referred to as "bitchin".

I like eager.  Kick ass or bitchin seems like too much for a little sedan.

Perky, eager and enthusiastic in my life could be summarized as Laura.  A very memorable person in my past "team photo" of life.

Spirited and peppy are my go-to. Above "Spirited" but just slightly below genuine "Fast" is another favorite of mine, "jaunty".

I gave a thumbs-up to both posts. Somehow, that makes sense!

Once read a science paper showing that a minor but surprisingly large fraction of men do not like perky laugh

Some people grew up with National Geographic as their first exposure to "things".  Pretty sure "perky" wasn't featured.

Reminds me of a guy who's a pro skiier or something and reviews supercars on YouTube. Everything is either good or "like a bus."
