This is my first week with the car and I absolutely love it! Mostly driving in regular mode but today I spent the day in Eco. Very bizarre experience: like having big brother constantly reminding you to take it slow and easy. My previous car for the last four years was a VW Tiguan 2.0 turbo with 4motion all wheel drive. The CT is definitely a big change but the mileage numbers are so addictive. This car gets twice the fuel economy of the Tigger! Before the Tigger I had a Passat TDI. I almost went diesel again but started to remember what I didn't like about the oil burner: searching for stations that had diesel, sticky grimy filling handles, very slow to get heat on cold mornings. The final stroke was realizing that diesel is now trending as being more expensive than regular gas. The best thing about the CT? It's not a Prius but has all the lean and clean benefits.
