Excellent little car

I own a 2013 smart pure, made for me with no frills, options, radio, a/c, nothing but the basic car. And what an excellent little car it is, I'm impressed. I wanted a car for my back and forth commute to work, that's mostly the thruway, 55 to 65+ miles per hour. I was surprised when I found the car gets between 40 and 45 miles per gallon no matter how I drive. My only regret is that I didn't get a radio, but I will.
