Well, we're in a suburb and the main way into town is a freeway, so you could say it's pretty frequently "highway driven". (It's only 90km/hr at least) I test drove an automatic Metro a while back and I was pretty turned off by its highway performance. (Even in general it just seemed very very gutless, compared to the relatively peppy manual.) I was thinking of it as an option, but maybe something with a 4th gear or overdrive would be better.
