yep, even edmunds shows the little turbo 1.4 beat the titanium with a 16.1 compared to a 16.4 on the strip. they also said the handling was superb due to the wider wheelbase and suspension design.
I like how everyone compares the darts 3170lbs weight to a base focus weight. the base dart comes with alot more standard than the base focus does.
but to each his own...
