Not as good as the Transport Canada ratings suggest. But overall, very good for a car that can haul so much cargo. see full Pontiac Vibe review

I average about 32 mpg with mixed city and highway driving, which I think is great for a car that has about as much cargo space as many small SUVs. see full Pontiac Vibe review

I am averaging about 28 mpg. The lowest so far was 25 mpg when it was cold and I did only short distances. That is great if you are used to 17 mpg in a minivan. see full Pontiac Vibe review
