This right here is the heart of the Envista Avenir. Like all other Envistas and the Trax, the Avenir is powered by a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder motor that puts out 136 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque through a 6-speed automatic. It isn’t exactly an inspiring powerplant, but it gets the job done. It even sounds sort of neat, like a small, angry dog.

My only issue is that because it’s so not powerful, you’ve got to really push it to get going. Over my 425-ish miles of testing, I only managed gas mileage in the middle-high 20s. That’s not awful, but it isn’t spectacular for a motor this small. Luckily, it does take regular gas, so filling up doesn’t cost very much.
