12. We have one, and it's a great car.
It has more power (for acceleration) than we expected, and we average about 50 mpg. It handles well in snow and ice, too. And the inside is well laid-out, with nice "toys" like GPS and a real-time display of your mpg. (My husband is a little too fond of the mpg feature, and likes to keep me informed about the milage and the degree of battery charge when he's driving. ;) )
