It will work out exaclty how much everything will cost to run so you dont have to find it out after you have bought the car. Its a cool tool!

I like shifting by myself and it is the only vehicle with sliding doors and 3-row seating that has a 6-speed manual available. It’s rated at 24 mpg combined and I can usually do quite a bit better than that by short shifting (larger throttle opening, lower rpm shifts). The three rows only seats 6 instead of 7 but it still has plenty of room for long trips for 4 people, even camping trips with lots of gear and my leggy 18 year-old son can still fit in the center seat for a long haul. It’s basically a narrow, more efficient mini-van. I don’t like the styling very much but the utility, efficiency and performance sold me.

The smaller Mazda CX-5 crossover probably has better space utilization than a traditional sedan but it is smaller than the Mazda 5. The powertrain is more advanced than on the 5 and it is rated at 29 mpg combined. It uses Mazda’s new “Skyactiv” engines and transmissions consisting of a direct-fuel-injection engine with a higher compression ratio and more efficient manual and automatic transmissions. The fuel economy rating of the automatic matches that of the manual. Mazda is applying Skyactiv across their product line and I would guess it will arrive in the Mazda 5 in a year or two.

There should be a whole host of more fuel efficient product offerings from all of the manufacturers over the next couple of years as the new GHG regulations phase in, so don’t give up hope.

He settles on one car, and next day changes his mind; then he fixes all his attention to one car and is on the verge of buying it when he finds another option. And the story goes on, he is still wondering which one to get.

Imagine if 1% of Americans would not only get an efficient car, but stop driving the old ones, we can save so much, and have a less carbon print on the planet.
There should be more insensitive to have better cars, and also to push people to use more public transportation!
Cheers!
