About as good as it gets for what I describe as a mini-SUV. EPA rated 28/33 at the time. I get 25-26 mpg in driving that is mostly city; on trips 31-32 mpg going 65-70. see full Pontiac Vibe review

29 mpg... and I cane the poor thing frequently. It would probably do a little better if I drove it sensibly. see full Pontiac Vibe review

I get anywhere from 32 to 34 MPG highway in this little beauty! It saved my butt through skyrocketing gas prices during the summer of 2008. see full Pontiac Vibe review
