I know this subject has be tossed around here and there between threads, I wanted to get something a little more solid here.. I prefer the manual trans and being that choices are limited...( very, very limited) to the 1.4L in NA with the 6 Spd.. I was curious what everyone thinks the drivability will be like with something that size and weight with an engine that small. I am not looking for (or expecting the power of a BMW X6 here) but would like it to not be grossly underpowered.. I realize this can be somewhat subjective but I think everyone knows what I mean as I drive through hills and somewhat mountainous roads semi often. I currently drive a 2012 Focus with a (2.0L non turbo) putting out 160hp/146torque and the car weighs roughly 3,000 lbs.. and the car is totally adequate for me. Input anyone?
