Read that one this morning. Very positive indeed.

I particularly liked this line:

Green Car Reports said:
Only under really heavy throttle does the 1.6-liter make its presence known, and even then, it's quieter than the gasoline-powered Cruze's 1.4-liter turbo 4-cylinder.

I read that yesterday, I was impressed that it is quiet, must be really quiet. In addition, was impressed they had positive comments about the new automatic transmission.

In the review, it said he did 80% freeway driving. I have avg over 45 several times in that mix. Right now I'm at 39 mpg lifetime at a 50/50 mix overall.

But that's not necessarily 80% all at once. I used to drive probably a similar amount of freeway when I lived at home - but it was not all in a row, and all the city was stop and go.

And being a review vehicle, it's very likely they were driving it rather spiritedly as well.

Can almost guarantee more than 45 will be easily doable in similar conditions.

I was able to get 60 MPG on the freeway, no problem at all, not even trying.
Knowing how easy it is to obtain high 40s in a car with the trunk and back seat packed with hundreds of pounds of ****, driving through mountains, I'd say mid-high 50s would be easily attainable in similar situations given the lower curb weight and extra gears (in the auto).
