    Because the Trax is a brand new car that starts at only 21k. Have you looked at what other cars you can get for 21k these days? I'll save you the effort: there's not many and most of them are Kia

      Sums it up. It's also crossover-shaped. At that price point it's probably the largest car available too.

        Are you pretending to be moronic or do you not realize that manuals have been faster for the vast majority of automotive history and are still faster in small displacement/low powered cars.

          This, for the longest time automatic was geared for maximum fuel savings or for comfort, meanwhile manuals were made to be much more sporty. Now due to demand for every car to be fast, automatics are geared to be faster than manuals ever could be, with the exception of CVTs.

        >You really think it'll be fuel efficient when the engine is obviously stressed?
        Those drivetrains do really well in small town environments. Never has to push hard. Plenty of places like that. Current place where I live doesn't have a speed limit higher than 25mph for the small town. It has tons of pedestrian traffic so it's not going to get raised any time soon. Highway isn't that much of an issue either, I've managed with <2.0L engines on the regular, it just requires about six extra seconds of forward planning, which is usually "full throttle until sufficient 65th percentile speed is reached."

        I'd be suspicious about small GM engines though. They do weird cost cutting on the powerplants that lead to them being really unreliable. They are strictly fleet lease vehicles only.

        The government's CAFE standards do and that's all that matters to them. The engine may blow itself out in 50,000 miles and get 10 MPG; but if the government thinks it gets 40 MPG then they'll be happy. Such is life under the stupidity of the regulatory state.

        It probably will be. My parents have a mild hybrid nu-puma with the 110hp ecoboom and it averages about 55 (UK) mpg.

          Things are very different in America. City speeds can exceed 80mph and traffic is made up of 300hp crossovers and 400hp trucks who expect you to drive with the flow of traffic.

            That’s horrendous, this is a penalty drivetrain by all definitions. GM had the terrain returning 30MPG over 10 years ago with a bigger engine, more power, and a larger vehicle.

            Awful. That is what a 1.7l or 1.8l can do.
            A 1.2l should not have that insanely bad fuel economy.

            Displacement doesn't determine fuel consumption. Engine load does. If you need 90hp to move a vehicle it's going to use 90hp worth of fuel regardless of the displacement. The pumping losses between a 1.8 and a 1.2 are pretty fricking negligible. That 1.2 is going to be working harder which will use more fuel.

    Its a decent looking car with decent space and interior with a bottom tier engine. Not very common combo in America, but a very common approach in Europe.

      Sounds like a pretty decent approach actually. You just need enough power to effectively merge and pass on the highway which really isn't that much.

        Not sure what you're on about, they had several others beyond 2006, and the final one for the US market (2.5L NA LCV) was made until 2022. They still make NA 4 cylinders for other countries.
