In town is only OK...maybe 22-24 MPG. On the highway on level stretches, 42-43 MPG is very common. 16 gallon fuel tank give you plenty of travel range on the highway. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

To get something close in horsepower, you need a 6 cylinder and the inherently lower fuel economy that comes with that vs. a 4 cyl. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
