i'd personally like to see the base model come with a 1.5ltr. turbo 3 putting out about 180hp and 190ft-lbs.(extrapolating from the specific outputs of the 2ltr. n20); this iteration would perhaps come closest to the target wt. of 2200lbs. this seems to me to be preferable to a lesser tuned, heavier and likely less fuel efficient 2ltr. perhaps this would require separate EPA certification but otherwise seems logical, imho.
