    I don't usually admire cars a whole lot but have to say the one in the photo is awfully cute.

    On the same lines, I would like the Mazda 2 please. I am sure the BMW prices will not excite me, but the Mazda prices will. The only reason I am staying away from Mazda 3 is its MPG. MAzda 2 is supposed to give 45MPG.

    Mazda2 was the Demio in other countries right? I've read up on that and I think it's going to come here as the Ford Fiesta. I have a feeling they're going to ugly it up for the American version, but I hope it keeps its miller-cycle engine with great MPG.

    We shall see.

    Once again, the biggest annoyance in journalism regarding any discussion of MPG- automotive press or general media....

    PLEASE MAKE A DISTINCTION BETWEEN IMPERIAL OR US GALLONS.

    Hi Aca2983:

    ___Fortunately for us, we can all figure it out very quickly and 2., we know either can be smashed to bits! The APA/Honeywell Turbo Diesel Ride and Drive seminar I was at this past week had a BMW 330d w/ the V6 and I know that thing is an easy 50 + no matter what the Euro Extra Urban says it cannot do :D We did not get the chance to drive it however :(

    ___Good Luck

    the U.S. definitely needs more diesel options.

    Whether from Honda, Toyota, Ford, etc..

    If they were to bring over the Diesel Civic with the quality we all can count on Honda for I would be sold..And probably not have to buy another car for 10+ years
