80 mph hwy car gets 27-28 mpg, 25 around town. If you are aggessive expect 15-20. As others have said, Fun to drive, great power, ete. but stopping is incredible. Have avoided two sure accidents with these massive brakes! I even pull my dirtbikes on a small trailer and I hardly know its there. Amazing to pull a trailer with such a small car but does so easily.
6 Speed, hatchback, 4 doors...what is not to like?
Multiple suspension settings. Sport suspension isn't always desired and can be kinda noisy on some roads.
