The cruising rpms are on the high side on this little 1.2L. Just a bit over 3000 at 70 mph. Not as bad as it could be, but it could be better, and it is if you buy one in Europe. They come with a little taller gearing over there.




The CVT is arguably MUCH better at keeping the RPMs down as the data shows.
