ST Mileage vs Performance Tradeoff

A look at fuelly.com shows that the 30 '13 STs on there are getting a combined average of 25.4mpg, compared to the 50 '13 regular Foci getting 29.3mpg.

That's less than the 5mpg drop predicted by the EPA testing.

Not a bad tradeoff at all given the increased performance.
