I have owned 8 cars so far in my lifetime, and this one is #1.
The quality of materials is outstanding for this model type and the performance IS as advertised.
I am currently getting exactly 33.1 mpg, and I drive about 50/50 city and highway.
If I drive solely Highway, I get 38 mpg.
This car also handles very vell.
It takes turns more like a sports car than a compact.
By the way, I used to drive a Nissan 300 with twin turbo's, so yes, I do know how a sportscar should handle.
All-in-all, I say that if you buy this car, I can guarantee that you will get the best value for your buck.
Enjoy, and happy driving!
