This car is like our 2004 Acura RL - mini version. Currently getting 33mpg in town driving. No road figures yet. A real pleasure for the 35 mile commute (one way) each morning. It has excellent response and quite a good ride. Instrumentation is easy to read and it is gas supplemented by the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA). More power than the standard Accord and due to it's lighter wieght, much more peppy off the line and when you need it on the road. Creature features are excellent. Had to pay MSRP, but no mark-up at least. That's been known to happen with lesser vehicles. This car took me into the hybrid market. Hadn't seen one I liked the looks of until this came along.
Nav system - definately! XM radio, heated seats. I added third party dark burlwood trim kit (real wood) and it looks great. Good visibility when driving and changing lanes. Just a well thought through design overall and great warranty - especially on the battery.
Honda should figure out a way to utilize some sort of "real" spare tire. Not comfortable with the system, but then again, I haven't had a flat tire in 25 years ( knock on wood). Michelin's are great on vehicle, but not the Michelin Pilot like on the Acura. Still a happy camper.
