I had both.
My caliber for a year, my neon for almost a year.
My caliber looked way better, orange sunburst, blacked out windows and tails, she was so pretty.
Interior, crap, handling, decent, vision was terrible, did I mention the interior? Then I found out I wasn't going to be having a kid(well my ex wasent). So I sold it and bought my teenage dream car the neon srt4.
The caliber for sure is an adult car, the neon is just the hopes and dreams of all of my car love.
The caliber was much easier to get into, sat a few inches taller, bigger interior room.
