Good car, but not for what I bought it for (MPG)

ReviewOverall the car is fine. I really like the interior and the way it handles on flat roads and downhill in the mountains. It's light and fun to drive in these conditions and feels very stable. Downside: It's more underpowered than I expected--even hilly neighborhoods have the engine revving high and loud. AC seems to increase the problem. The nav system is not intuitive--my cell phone app is more user friendly. Speakers are tinny and HD radio is not useful because it keeps fading out--unsure if the problem is the car or HD radio in general. Biggest problem is MPG--have yet to break 25 MPG with 60+% highway driving. Trip computer seems to overestimate actual by about 1.4 MPG.
Best FeaturesLight, sure-footed handling. AWD. Interior looks very nice.
Worst FeaturesNeed to improve MPG, nav system, and sound system. More power would be helpful. It only gets about 3 MPG more than my 1999 Acura TL got on essentially the same daily commute. Harder paint--scratches very easily.
