2011 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I rented a 2011 Sonata for 3 months and was pleased to get 23.5 mpg combined. I drive about 100 miles a day and the ratio of city/highway is 50/50. We looked at buying the 2011 Sonata, Camry or Malibu because they claim to get the same mileage. We ended up with an LTZ and I am lucky to get 19 mpg combined. Pure highway driving only gets me 21 mpg. Not happy with American cars right now and it is always the drivers fault with mileage even though the cars are all driven the same way.
Rear seat arm rest, better MPG, front arm rests set further in-feel cramped by the door compared to the camry and sonata.
