idk about Canada but in the states I would be considering the v8....smoking deals have been posted. I know you have to pay alot more for gas but the mpg differance is not huge unless you travel alot. Good luck and enjoy the search. fwiw If I had to replace today I'd be looking at the BRZ...I admit to liking small tossable cars, I would have had a Miata but I'm too tall.
2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.
