Around town it's not great, but out on the open road mileage almost doubles. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
2009 2dr Coupe turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The fuel economy is very good considering the performance available. I typically get better than 25MPG with a fair bit of city driving and fairly heavy throttle. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
2009 4dr Sedan turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4

In mixed driving I get 25 - 26 MPG, even with 75 mph stints and popping in and out of traffic. In pure highway, gets 28+ at 70+ see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
