How to reduce the aerodynamic efficiency of a Metro

4-cylinder, 3 speed auto, oversized wheels/tires, and now worse aerodynamics.


Would I still drive it? Yes, I would.

Three speed autos are soul-crushing, I wouldn't drive it. In fact, I think three speed autos were a conspiracy by big pharma to sell more antidepressants.

2016: 128.75L for 1875.00km => 6.87L/100km (34.3MPG US)
2017: 209.14L for 4244.00km => 4.93L/100km (47.7MPG US)

I used to have a two-speed auto in a '56 Chevy.

My first car.

Those ole Powerglides do very well in drag racers.

Didn't depress me :-)

I never got to drive any car with a 2-speed automatic, and my only experience with a 3-speed was in a Pontiac Trans Sport with the 3.1L TBI engine. Not sure how I would be satisfied or not with the Metro, even though I have already seen some of the Suzuki Swift with the 1.0L engine and the 3-speed automatic.
