I am averaging 23 mpg around the city and recently got 26 mpg on trip from Atlanta to Virginia. The 4-cylinder engine is all most people need for the pep they would expect. Price is extreme reasonable if you negotiate and stand steadfast. This car is stylish and has been extensively engineered. I am a staunch proponent of it.
Responsiveness, styling, and gas mileage. Prefer the lines over the Ford Escape. Lighting is excellent at night and high beams are awesome. Fog lights work very well.
More door pockets. Should come standard with the rear cover over the storage area so thieves cannot peer inside the vehicle. Would not recommend purchasing a hybrid at this time because they are priced a bit too high. Should gas rise rapidly over a sustained period maybe consider.
