Commented On: Getting Good Gas Mileage Is Hard; Will Tinier Engines Really Help?


Green Car Reports 0 Views 45 comments
Well the problem is, people are interchanging engine power efficiency with fuel economy and so things get very confusing depending on what angle you're looking at it from. A turbocharged engine is indeed more efficient because it uses the hot exhaust gases to force in more fuel. However, from the perspective of fuel economy, it's always worse to turbocharge a gasoline engine unless you're turbocharging a small engine in lieu of using a large naturally aspirated engine.

Prius C has 35" of rear leg room while the yaris 5 door has 33" of leg room. At 6'3, that's the difference between sitting comfortably in the back seat and being crammed in there. This alone is enough for me to want the Prius C instead of the Yaris since I know nobody in the back will be without sufficient leg room.

While I greatly appreciate that for once, a media outlet actually knew that the difference between these CAFE fuel economy figures that are being discussed and the figures you see on the monroney sticker, I'd like to clarify or correct on thing in the article.. It says that a vehicle that gets 62mpg on the CAFE fuel economy cycle would be approximately 50mpg on the monroney sticker.. It's actually more along the lines of 44mpg...not 50mpg which is approximately the fuel economy of the 2004-2009 Prius or the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid..

Before the author of this article came to his conclusion on what vehicle to buy, I was thinking of the Highlander Hybrid as well and when I saw they came to the same conclusion, I was a little saddened because then I realized, there really aren't many choices in a situation like this.
