As far as the mileage - this vehicle is a great downsizer from larger SUVs. I guarantee it will hold more stuff than your larger SUVs out there- due to it's design. And still it's power only drains about 22 \ 24 avg mpg. Great vehicle- very happy with it.
Easy clean interior, wide opening "suicide" doors--- on both sides.
More traditional driver shifter and arm rest area would be better with an improved dash- perhaps more like the civic would be nice.
