Totally different animal.
The SSEi, with the mods I had in it(pulley, FWI) may have been a bit faster(keep in mind,mine was a Series 1, Series 2 SSEi is probably much faster than the Park), and the cornering was a lot flatter, but the Park is definitely a lot more comfortable.
Park Ultra="Entry-level Luxury"
Entry level my a$$-the number of gadgets in this car is amazing.
CD/Tape Stereo with 8-speakers(kicks like h*ll, too)
Engine monitor(oil life, oil pressure, coolant temp, fuel mileage, etc...)
Heated Leather bucket seats with 3 memory settings
Seat console has scads of storage, including slots for CDs, and fold out cup-holders
Dual Climate Control that actually works
Adaptive wipers(when the windshield gets wetter the wipers go faster)
Teachable garage door opener transmitter
Keyless entry(not sure whether it can remote start the car, but I wouldn't doubt)
Other stuff I'll undoubtedly find out later.
Oh, and no antenna for the radio. All internal, and better reception than my Bonnie.
Verdict, Bonnie definitely the one for speed, Buick for comfort.
I think I personally like the Park better, I've always been a sucker for luxury cars.
