I have only seen the Neon---Never driven one, but I cant see what all the fuss is over the Neon. It looks like a reallt small car. The Caliber on the other hand doesnt look like a small car. It definately doesnt ride or drive like a small car. Had two "large" adults in the back seat for over an hour on an outing and they said they were comfortable. I also had a Neon with an older driver in it checking out my caliber from all angles while on the freeway and finally gave me the 'OK' sign. WHAT A CAR!!!!
