|I hope you like hard shifts and turbo lag. I mean, I don't know if the N will suffer from that, but having put nearly 45k on a 1.6T DCT Kona Ultimate, I will say the turbo lag is noticeable moreso in hotter weather. It likes fall and early winter the best, and it gets its best gas mileage then, too. I will also say that its hard to get EPA ratings for gas mileage, at least with the 1.6T. I think my average is something like 23-25 mixed and about 27 on the highway. Not quite EPA ratings. In the city, in stop and go traffic, mileage really suffers. My city mileage is probably closer to 24-25. I will say, even the non-N is quite quick and fairly nimble on its feet, and from a roll, it will surprise a number of sportier compacts, even from this current era.
