Be careful, ads are always deceiving in that they only tout the good points. For example: the “estimated” 84 mpg highway really means when driven on a flat smooth road with no hills or other conditions that reduce mileage, and it is ESTIMATED, not in any way guaranteed. See if they advertise an estimated city mpg, that will be closer to what owners actually experience.
Don’t know what part of the world you’ll be driving thus in, but how’s the heater in cold climates?, and what kind of traction does it get in the winter snow?
Other considerations; will you always only need a one seater?, if you do rake it on the highway, what is the acceptation merging into traffic? What is the convenience for parts and service?
I guess I used up my time on, so I’ll close out.
