I wanted… no needed, the diesel engine to get the estimated 49mpg. So far, after 2500 miles, it has ranged from 45 to 49mpg. Another requirement I had was to not to sacrifice performance. This baby has quite enough pep to zip around and handles the curves and corners beautifully. The only sacrifice I feel I made was with the interior room, mainly the back seat leg room.
All the standard features and the excellent mileage.
The radio volume knob is querky... when parked with the engine off and you try to turn the volume down low it goes from a moderate volume to nothing (beeps and says VOLUME MIN on the display).
