I'm not catching the conversational drift, but Okay. The only song fromt hat era still played today would be Greensleeves and this:

One problem with bigger cars is that they take more fuel to move. Usually. As long as they're heavy.

But technology is closing the gap:


Apologies for the INCREDIBLY dirty screen... don't have a duster in the car, she's a loaner.

Civic 1.5 turbo. Fuel economy on a non-flat highway is phenomenal. 25.3 km/l, or 59 mpg at an average 50+ mph with the AC blasting. The end points, at just 18-25 mpg don't seem spectacular, but they're in city traffic, so that's not bad. I typically get less in the Civic's naturally aspirated competitors.

So yeah, 2017 Civic, as big as a 1997 Accord, but helluvalot more economical.

Even though some cars in a random segment grew up in size, it seems like the displacement didn't increase in the same proportion, which might lead to the technological improvements in the field of engine management to become more noticeable.

Just had to share it: JDM E140 Toyota Corolla Axio, slightly shorter and noticeably narrower than the international versions of that generation of the Corolla
