Did they redo the grill for a certain year? I don't recall the front end looking that way.

Very pretty though.

That's the new grill for 2013. It is what it is, slightly clunky and I don't think the hood protector helps in the looks department. None the less, it's a great car. the other changes they've made for 2013 make up for the grill.

I do like the available sports grill better but i'm fine w/ stock.

I mean, I personally like the grill. It's slightly more solid looking than the older one in my opinion. I got to drive one briefly but not enough to form any opinions.

I thought it was a little clunky at first but it's growing on me.

I've almost used a half tank of gas and the average mpg is sitting at 26.4 on this new motor. That's mixed driving.

And I took off the moonroof shade, not a fan of those. When I look up i want to see sky.

I drove a 2010 a year ago, there's quite a difference between the models, they've improved the car considerably IMO.

Nice pick up! I just picked one up myself around the end of February as well. I got the 2.5i 6-speed though.

I don't mind the CVT, I'm sure it's the reason I'm getting great mileage.

Today was my third fill up and on my second tankful of regular with 50/50, around town and interstate driving I'm getting 28.9 measured by calculator. My dash read out had 29.1 mpg, not that far off.

It does take some getting used to, the throttle feel is different. But with the paddle shifters for downshifting, I'm starting to get the idea of what it can do.
