Re: MAZDA2 declared 2008 World Car of the Year.

My wife owns the previous 1.3L gasoline AT Mazda 2 (Demio in Japan), (special edition in pink.....)
Anyway between cars, I drove it for about a month on my mountain commute route and it returned a respectable 40mpg with some NICE on, regular gasoline. In the same season and on the same route the NHW10 Prius gave about 56mpg. Does a lot better on climbing the 10% grades than the NHW10 and more than good enough for Japanese highways.

Good Luck
