In all reality he might have had no interest in the actual car to begin with and decided not to actually do any type of research. No car is pointless. As was pointed out, it has a very nice price, and this means it is affordable to just about anyone. It really all depends on how you view a car. If you think a car is something to have fun in, then yes ofcourse you are going to want some more power. If on the other hand you view driving as simply a way to get from point a to point b then you are going to have a very different outlook on the Caliber.
