For a subcompact car, this one delivers. Awesome fuel mileage is the deal on this car. It won't burn the tires off with take off, but you're gonna get at least 42 mpg with cruise and a/c on! Turn off a/c and cruise, and you're getting 50 mpg. The car is zippy, and contrary to opinion, big trucks do not blow you off the road. The thing will turn on a dime. Park anywhere.
Can we say awesome mpg's? This is a no-brainer people. If you want to spend an extra 10 to 15 grand on a hybrid, that's your choice. Six airbags and abs brakes come standard.
