what abt the new Kia Soul's weight?

Nearly 200 pounds heavier that the Rio; 2560 compared to 2365 for the Rio.
Neither of them get stellar fuel economy; 28 MPG (combined) compared to 30 for
the Rio.

If I was in the market for a High MPG vehicle, I would be looking for
something on this order....

These little 4X4 trucks are perfect for running around the woods, or in
snow country.  They weigh next to nothing, and have traction, up the
gazoo. Small engines, and light weight, make them 50+ MPG capable
and they can HAUL a pile of junk, all while keeping you cozy and warm
in the cab... cheap as well....

To Bad I just bought a Rhino 660 to do the Job... or I would have gotten
one of these, for $K less money....  Oh well, the Rhino 660 will be a
nicer ride, as long as you can stand the outdoors weather.....

I had a Nissan Sentra, 1983 version. 5 speed
econobox, no A/C, no radio. But when we drove
to Ashville, NC. from Lexington, KY, the following
year, we got 59.13 MPG. Same pump in Lexington,
same tilt to the car, same topping off, etc.
But I had learned to drive it with a dash-mounted
"mileage monitor" vacuum gauge.
That car was a sweetheart when it came to being
tested at the local VET (vehicle emissions testing).
But alas, it's gone after over a quarter million miles,
the metal-eating termites got the best of it.
Really wish the car makers had stayed in that
direction, instead of taking a popular car and adding
"stuff" to it.
