As good or better looking than the Focus, Corolla and Mazda 3, better interior than the Lancer and the Mazda, better published economy than all of them and well outfitted and equipped for thousands of dollars less... YET... the 1.8L demonstrator went a lot better than the car I ended up with, and the 5.4 l/100k highway and 7.5 litres combined published figures seem to be the figment of someone's overly active imagination. Downhill with a tail wind, the best I could get on an all highway cycle was 7.2L/100km and best combined was 9.6, giving 33% and 28% respectively, worse and really trying hard to get those figures, no cruise control, limited gear changes and even resorting to the illegal practice of coasting downhill in neutral!
