Real world numbers

I've put about 15,000 miles on a 2016 Camaro automatic 2.0 turbo (with the base tires) in the last year. It is capable of some relatively good fuel economy. It'll get ~35 MPG driving 70 on a windless day, and you can average over 40 going slower (it shifts into 8th gear at 44 MPH). It has really nice range with a 19 gallon tank, fantastic "one tank trip" car.

I haven't driven the older Cruze much, but spent a little time in a new hatch. It easily gets 5, if not 10, MPG more under the same conditions as the Camaro. Smaller motor, smaller car, smaller tires, it adds up and makes sense.
