Before buying a Toyota, Honda, Nissan or Ford in Fort Wayne…the press says check out the Elantra!

Even articles about the all-new Focus talk about the great fuel economy of the 2011 Hyundai Elatra.

2012 Ford Focus rated at 38 mpg on the highway

Ford announced today the government fuel-economy ratings for the rest of the Focus lineup, which goes on sale this month. It announced the rating for the extra-cost high efficiency Focus last week. But the regular models with automatic transmission models, which most buyers will take, have been EPA-rated at 28 mpg in the city, 38 on the highway and 31 in combined city-highway use.

The manual transmission models may be more fun, but also will use more gas: They are rated 26 city, 36 highway and 30 combined.

The Focus with the optional SFE (Super Fuel Economy) special equipment package is rated the magic 40 on the highway and 28 city.

The mileage of regular Focus falls short of the 2011 Hyundai Elantra, which is rated at 29/40/33 mpg for all models with automatic and manual — or as Hyundai says, “With no asterisk”. 2011 Hyundai Elantra rated 40 mpg highway with no extra-cost package. But it easily bests the Chevy Cruze’s 24 mpg city, 36 highway, 28 combined with its automatic models. Cruze also went the extra-cost package route to get a higher-mpg model to advertise: The Cruze Eco is rated 42 highway, 28 city with a manual transmission.

Honda’s redesigned 2012 Civic, which is coming this spring, is expected to return 39 mpg highway for regular models. It, too, is expected to have a special high mileage model rated at more than 40.
