    Doesn't that just tie it with the BMW 328d, which also is rated at 45 MPG highway?

    There must be another reason - besides fuel economy - to buy a 1.0L Fiesta - better handling? More torque? Lighter weight? A greater fun-to-drive factor? More equipment?

    The base 1.6L costs less than a penny per mile more to operate. Would a buyer rather have the base Fiesta with 20,000 miles worth of free gas or the 1.0L with bragging rights?

    Fuel economy numbers only seen on hybrids and diesels?

    Nahhh, Geo Metro has been EPA certified for 58 mpg/hwy since 1989...mine still gets 53 mpg/hwy...easily...and 45-47 city/hwy always.

    Geo Metro: the leader in continuing embarassment for Detroit.

    Wouldn't it be great if Suzuki popped up with a non-hybrid, non-electric, non-diesel sub compact that got 70 mpg and met all safety strictures/rules?

    They CAN do it...of course, the American public is probably still in a dark cavity and STILL reluctant to buy a Suzuki (except pizza delivery businesses)...laughter
