Default Reasonably positive review in Macleans magazine (Canada)

http://macleans.auto123.com/en/info/new ... rtid=45144

The only real negative is that the reviewer didn't get the expected economy: "While my conservative driving style is usually able to best the government's averages, I simply couldn't match them this time around. Tried as I did, I can conclude that the only possible way of achieving figures this low is down hill with a tailwind. But when driven like the average consumer, the returns are still respectable; I managed 4.5 L/100 km, with the A/C on full blast and plenty of city driving."

When will the EPA publish results from "real world" driving, including cities with stop signs, summer and winter weather, and highways???

I saw this too and thought the author did an excellent job of learning about the car in the seven days he had it.

He did great considering the A/C was on and did lots of city driving.
Most auto journalists get over 6 L/km somehow
