I read everything there was in Edmunds and then I compared and drove with Mazda3, Scion,Civic and Corolla. No comparisons when it comes to the interior volume as I am tall. I get a respectable 28mpg and I drive speed limits cause I know the sheriff is out for me in my red car. The car wants to go fast all the time. The dealer says it is built to cruise 100mph all day. I believe it! In the flat open highways of my western state this car is a dream and head turner. Make sure your car comes with the Arm rest as it conforms to different positions of the driver's arm. my wife drives with the seat forward and we can slide the arm rest to suit her.
The Arm rest with iPod connector, 3 transmissions in 1, ESP control, the interior look and quality, leg room up front,
Improve gas mileage to 30+ mpg, better positioning of the 12 V plug in the front, add another 12V plug for use by the back seat.
