CVT is definitely still more common, but since it does add about $1k to the price and this is a cheap car to begin with there are more 5 speeds than normal. That being said, when I a had CVT Mirage for a week, the CVT returned some great MPG for almost zero driving effort. I typically set the cruise and was golden (50+ mpg). It is programmed for economy.
