I wanted looks, and MPGs.
That's what I exactly what I got.
You want power, then get the turbo.
If I want 'fast', I'll take the '66 Mustang for a spin.
This car looks hot, handles great, and is everything I expected.
Powered by a 1.6, I didn't expect a pace car.
My previous car was a
non-turbo Mini Cooper, and I find this one to be just as much fun.
Steering wheel controls are great.
Radio and cruise control laid out perfect.
Bluetooth paired easily, and is very clear on both sides of the conversation.
MPG was just as expected.
While others seem to vary, I was able to get over 40mpg when I drove conservatively.
37mpg when I was more agressive.
Seats are comfy, and back support is good, but seat bottoms seem have weak cushions.
Maybe it's just my backside, but looks like there's a crater where I sat when I get out of the car (and I only weigh 155 lbs.)
