Current Mood:Confused emoticon Confused

So after a bit of investigation, here’s where we stand (sorry for the formatting problem, but WordPress doesn’t have many HTML options for font size):

Company Model Base Price Config. Price Monthly City Mileage Hwy Mileage Perks
Chevrolet HHR $19,855.00 $23,605.00 $346.00 10.4 L/100 km 6.8 L/100 km Side airbags, iPod control
Chrysler PT Cruiser $19,695.00 $23,945.00 $402.00 11.9 L/100 km 8.6 L/100 km  
Dodge Caliber $16,245.00 $17,895.00 $277.00 8.5 L/100 km 6.8 L/100 km Beverage cooler, luminescent drink holders
Kia Spectra5 LX Convenience $19,895.00 $21,350.00 $281.14 8.6 L/100 km 6.2 L/100 km  
Mazda 5 $20,795.00 $23,184.95 $362.44 9.6 L/100 km 7.1 L/100 km 6 seats, rain-sensing wipers, sliding doors  
Pontiac Vibe $19,210.00 $23,440.00 $302.00 8.2 L/100 km 6.3 L/100 km  
Saturn Astra $17,900.00 $21,700.00 $293.00 8.5 L/100 km 6.4 L/100 km 6 airbags, rain-sensing wipers, 1 year OnStar  
Subaru Impreza $21,595.00 $22,814.95 $420.94    
Toyota Matrix XR $20,735.00 $23,004.00 $401.04 8.0 L/100 km 6.0 L/100 km 6 airbags, aux input jack, cruise control

I can’t find any information on the Impreza’s gas consumption, but with the highest monthly cost there’s no point. The Matrix and PT Cruiser are the next highest. I’m surprised about the PT Cruiser’s poor mileage. All 3 go.

Style-wise, I was dithering between the PT Cruiser and HHR; I like those classic lines. Notice that the HHR is now the second-highest priced vehicle remaining on the list and the mileage also isn’t that great? I’ll reserve judgement on it until after a test drive.
