Read the first review, of the Kia Rio. Not everybody's idea of an ecofriendly wonder but it does appear to be cheap, cheerful and fuel-efficient. Given the circumstances and the medium (a "megawheels" section full of SUV ads) it is all a step in the right direction. :: Globe and Mail [by LA]
Treehugger is impressed that the The Globe and Mail, Canada's National Newspaper, has started a weekly column called Eco-Driver by Dan Proudfoot, covering only automobiles that do better than 30 miles per gallon US, 10 L/100km planet. Quoting the author: "The ultimate test for a car maker, according to Eco Driver's credo, is engineering a car that combines superior fuel efficiency with acceptable practicality and performance- and can be sold at an acceptable price." Well said.
