    When I see cars like the non hybrid Camry getting 49 MPG highway and the Cruze diesel getting 60 in Consumer Reports testing it bugs the hell out of me they don't get hit with a surcharge. They both get better mileage than this miserable Ioniq I bought.

    Hi Thunderstruck:

    The Cruze diesel was great on the highway but purely a 20 to 25 mpg car around town for most. It was really bad around town. :(

    The new 18/19 Camry and Camry Hybrid however are spectacular. The Camry Hybrid in both realms.

    Was the Cruze diesel in the turbo a lot while in town? If drivers could reduce in-town turbo use (probably tough), would that increase in-city MPG?

    Hi Litesong:
    I drove it at the MAMA Spring Rally 2 years ago on a 5-mile RT drive loop. It did not even finish in the middle of the pack vs a variety of hybrids and non-hybrids.

    I do not remember all the details but I posted here somewhere???
