Where in the HELL did they find those city numbers? They're almost all wrong, it's insanely off.

I agree. Those are some pretty off numbers. I saw the sonic is at 30 and the cruze isnt even on the list. It seems highly biased to imports, but then again consumer reports always is. Haha they may as well have Jeremy from top gear be their spokes person because everything I ever read from them is so critical of American cars.

Chevy Camaro 2ss convert... 25 highway? sounds about right. 11 city? o.0 did he burn out every stop sign/redlight? lol There's H/C/I Ls1's that pull 15 city. Driver mod needed.
Surprised I didn't see many WORST vehicles on the list. I was actually kind of hoping the volkswagon TDI would be 3rd? The Leaf is a heap. I hate Toyota but I see Priuses more than I do v6 pony cars so it must be "All right"

Every single one of those numbers seems off. A Nissan Leaf with an economy rating of 100+ mpg? So the battery has the equivalent energy of 0.6 gallons of gas? That does not sound very economical to me. And the Volt only getting 68 mpg city? They must have seriously lead-footed the shit out of it.
And what the hell were they doing to get 18 and 19 mpg out of a Focus and Sonic in the city? Racing between the lights? The only way I could get that shitty mileage in my old car (99 Saturn) was to redline literally every gear, and it was still better than that. That's not hyperbole, that's what actually happened.
