Hyundai will later have two other vehicles on the list; Sonata Hybrid and Elantra (28 city 40 hwy). It's amazing the number of quality vehicles (VW/Audi) on the list. This shows that you can save on gas without giving up quality or space. To me, a person who regularly drives highway miles should consider a diesel car like VW or Audi. I regularly drive in the city so when I'm ready for my next vehicle, it'll be a choice between Corolla, Forte, Elantra, Focus, Fit, Fiesta, or Versa. True, I won't have hybid MPG, but I also won't have a huge battery. If I were to get a hybrid, I'd probably get either a Fusion or a Sonata. However, I couldn't afford the price premium of the hybrid powertrain.

I'm surprised the new Ford Focus and Chevy Cruze didn't make the list. Both get better city/highway than a few cars on there.

LMAO at the Veyron. 1001 HP and it gets 8 and 15. My '73 Cutlass got crappier mileage than that.

Redlining the Veyron probably puts you at 1 mpg though

LOL, this thing can't be as efficient as a Freightliner Sprinter.

It isn't. But the Sprinter isn't rated because it's GVWR isn't low enough to require a fuel economy label.
