First, the car is not a BMW, does not
have anywhere near the handling

I average 22 to 23 mpg on premium fuel
in town driving). I have yet to
observe highway mileage.
The interior space is well designed for
hauling cargo when necessary. The car
remains tight and rattle free as I
approach 4k miles.
Sport shift feature, power passenger
seat, seat heaters, fold down rear
seats and passenger seat back. Analog
