i was very impressed with this little car.. averaged a bit more than 27mpg on 5000+ miles (round trip, east coast to grand canyon) fully loaded and bikes on the trailer hitch rack
-comfortable
-good storage for drinks and snacks
-easy to drive
-plenty of power for the 75mph (++ cough) speed limits out west
-easy access to luggage behind rear seat
-good handling on windy roads
-used apple maps via usb cable to dash screen, icon's intuitive (gas food etc)

Do you have stock tires? How did you find the road noise? It's the one thing that keeps me from taking my car on long trips instead of others in my fleet

Very surface dependent
Concrete was noticeable, grooved louder
Asphalt quiet

considering a more aggressive tread replacement for the occasional mud usage

I've felt so far - that the road noise in my 2021 Kona Ultimate 1.6T with the stock 18" Goodyear Eagle Touring tires was pretty quiet. I had a 2018 Sonata Eco with the 1.6T before this and would consider the cabin noise similar at similar speeds.

Would be interested to hear more opinions in the road noise.
