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

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

While the Cobalt may only get 23mpg in real city driving with a heavy foot, it is still relatively easy to achieve 28mpg in the city and 35+mpg on freeway. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review

Under good highway driving conditions the Cobalt can go 700km on a single tank, but even in harsh conditions fuel economy is reasonable. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review

While not as impressive as some of its competitors, the Cobalt is still good for low to mid 30s if driven properly. see full Chevrolet Cobalt review

I like that the 2.4L engine is able to put out significantly more power than the 2.2L and keep the same economy. The SS 2.4L is pretty quick and fun to drive and I still get 28 mpg on average just gunning around town with a lead foot and about 20% high see full Chevrolet Cobalt review
