Non-Hybrid Combined 70 mpg (Not Yours in U.S.)

It's not a hybrid and it doesn't have a plug, but Vauxhall's new Corsa ecoFLEX is rated at 71 mpg . This is a boost of 13 percent compared to the previous high-mpg Corsa and is due to the ecoFLEX treatment of minor tweaks to the aerodynamics and weight of the tires and wheels and taller gearing in the transmission. 

  • Max speed 104mph
  • Urban economy 54.3mpg
  • Extra-urban economy 85.6mpg
  • Combined economy 70.6mpg
