thx guys, yeah its a fun ride for sure. I love its rarity in the sense that you just dont see many of them in the wild, at least not around here.
Can't say I've seen more than one or two at most here in Beach Cities SoCal area. I assume that's the four leaf clover Quattrofromagio version? Pretty wicked.

I put in a chip and pedal booster,.
I smile every time I drive it!

With winter tires and cargo box on the roof, it makes for an amazing drive up I 70 to the hills for boarding,. And great for summer cruising.
Funnest car I have had since my 79 Alfa spider!

What’s the mpg in the city? The downside of my Acura RDX is struggling to get 14 mpg city driving.

With mainly city driving, and quite spirited driving, I average around 18 - 19 mpg.

thx dude, i was going back and forth between Red, and the 2 white options...I went Trofeo as in person the metal flake looks amazing and white seems to show off all the black vents etc in the grill much better to my eye.. Never thought i would buy a white car but that front end and the red interior cinched it for me.....Hell id happily own any of the colors honestly.....not a dog in the bunch

Yep. Based on instantaneous mileage display in the Acura (like a bar chart), its probably very low single digits when you punch it.

I've heard the Infiniti G35 would get similar 13 mpg city driving. It was probably 2007 I heard that comment. Might be better now. I'm glad your rocket gets better city mpg, because i find it really odd that both of our 2008 Acura RDX's get the same mileage as my 1987 Mazda RX-7 did (both city and highway).

Wish i still had that RX-7.

I believe that was the smaller, Escape based Bronco Sport.

I can’t believe they put a 3-banger in most of the Bronco Sport models.

Because these sport models are a completely different demographic. First off, they are very small. So if you want good gas mileage in a vehicle that looks miles better than an escape, that’s what it’s for.

If you go fully loaded and you’re idea of off-roading is a drive through the country or you want a little more oomph, you get the 4 cylinder 250hp to do those windy country roads at some decent speed.
But honestly, 180hp in the 3 for how small it is, it really won’t be sluggish.

The full size bronco is the real off roader.

A $30-35k vehicle should not have a three cylinder engine, no matter who the target market is.

I agree, but I just helped a friend buy a 2020 Escape for her son and the 3-cyl turbo is a pretty peppy & smooth engine. I’d drive one as a daily. Then again, we picked up her 2020 SE AWD for $21k.

If for nothing else, the perception. I'd never own a 4, but I'm guessing a 3 never factors in for most buyers.

I certainly have mixed feelings on it. It’s been a “meh” vehicle for me. Fun to drive but I have had some issues and maintenance costs have not been great. It’s fun in the twisted roads and has nice power but it’s too small and tight for any long drives IMO. Last dealership bill at the 24month maintenance was just under $1k with the oil change. My next vehicle will be a tundra with plenty of room and low maintenance...
