I found the 2006 Volkswagen Beetle to be very nimble and easy to handle. It has all the power I can ask for in a compact car. With just my wife and I this is more than enough car for us to use and it is getting about 26 MPG and it doesn't even have 1,000 miles on it. My other car is a GMC Yukon XL that gets about half the gas mileage.
