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.

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).
