eAssist Drivetrain

Just as this mild hybrid's cost and mileage gains are between those of regular cars and full hybrids, so is its driving experience. It feels a bit different from a regular gas-powered car, but it's not prone to surging, ill-timed droning noise or inconsistent braking -- some or all of which plague full hybrids. It has automatic engine start/stop, but it works only when the car has come to a stop, turning the engine off and on smoothly.
