Just curious, so Ithought I'd share this:
I chose base engines with auto, for comparison purposes.
Mazda 3: 34/26/29
Caliber: No Entry??
All figures from the EPA.
In short, the new cobalt is slightly worse than the old-design focus. The
'3' has a reputation as having pretty poor gas mileage, but in fact is
better than the domestic brands.
However, the honda and toyota are amazing. if you're in the market for a
small car, and can afford the premium for an import, AND gas mileage is one
of your top concerns....there's really only 2 choices.
