Chevrolet Cruze ECO: 58 mpg (US) @ 55 mph

They don't provide enough details to make a judgement on how accurate these figures are, but...

Driving the Eco: 58 MPG

We were very surprised to see that Chevy's claims are very conservative and that this car can reach a range that is, for a non-hybrid and non-diesel, absolutely ridiculous, in a positive way.
  • Our stop-and-go driving gave us 32.3 MPG,
  • our suburban driving with a mix of streets ended up at 39.8 MPG.
  • Extremely careful cruising on the interstate at exactly 55 MPH resulted in a stunning 57.9 MPG.
  • If you take advantage of the slipstream of a semi-truck (which we, of course, do not recommend), you can easily approach 65 MPG.
