    How has economy fared across the driving modes -- Eco, Normal and Sport? Despite the lethargy exhibited by the car I'm exclusively driving it in Eco mode in the hope that the clutch programs itself by learning my driving style. I know I'm being masochistic by choosing that mode when all I do is city driving. My fuel economy has hovered between 24 and 29 MPG. Hope it goes up after a few long road trips that're coming up in summer.

    I'm averaging about 33 mpg. When I'm on the interstate it hovers at 40 mpg. My commute is about half interstate and half surface streets. I drive only in Eco mode.
