"Over 36 MPG on the combined cycle".
W.T.F.?!?!
That's better than a base Fiesta. It's got to be some wacky British math or something.
I'd be ecstatic to get 36 MPG on the highway, though.

It is imperial gallon, not US gallon. There is a thread talk about weight and MPG in the forum.

I heard that as well, however remember it is in European or metric measurements!

I thought the same as you at first then remembered the tool in the video is talking about the euro spec version of the RS.

Hard to respect reviewers like this who can't be bothered to get their facts right. No, The RS does NOT come with the shell Recaros standard, as he implied, they are an option. And definitely no, Ken Block did NOT "develop the drift mode" lol.

As to the nice exhaust sound - get real people, virtually any crapcan sounds good when you gun it in an enclosed garage.

Aren't the Recaros standard in the EU? I know they are in AUS

Inside Lane Looks at the E.U. RS - Surrounded by The Whole RS Lineage!

This video is cool, not sure if it is indeed the entire RS lineage represented but there's a bunch of different years there, in great shape!

Good walkaround, closeups of some bits like the Brembos and the Euro interior.

Plus a revving sequence:
