Thanks to our over bearing nanny government, we don't get much choice in automobiles. The Peugeot 507 with a manual six speed and diesel engine was delivering 54 MPG overall in 2009 when we rented one in England. U.S. Manufacturers have crappy diesels that require special fluids and STILL don't get good mileage. The American people get screwed again as usual.

Funny! Some of you said "Why on earh would someone buy a car made in China or Mexico?" Mexico is the largest car manufacturer in North America, and even if you think 'your American' car was made here, it most likely was build and assambled in Mexico. Enjoy!

The Chevy Captiva is the Saturn Vue... it's not a new car and I've seen several in the US.. also the Luxury version is the Cadillac SRX.. because no one at GM has an imagination and they use the same cars/tucks/suvs as different models.. and people actually think they are different.. pffft

can't buy a standard in USA anymore, without going thru a ton of hassles.

Who is getting the cars that get 100+ MPG?

They are out there - but the oil companies don't want them to be sold.

 

Talk about big business sticking together - Oil and Auto's.  Prices of both keep going up, but we got better gas mileage on those old 1950's and 60's tanks, than on the newer 'lighter more fuel economic models" 

What a bunch of balogny - and big biz keeps doing it to us.

Still driving a old, old, old car.

There are alot more than just these ten. Sad that here in the "Consumer Nation" we do not have the luxury of CHOICE. The Amarok, NEW Ranger pickups are enjoying well over 30MPG diesels but not even offered in the good old USA.

Jeep Wrangler Diesel 35 mpg, 100% more torque, 50% more horse power and it's a 4 cylinder.  Nope - Europe only for this Toldeo Ohio built Jeep.

Drove the Peugeot 207 CC in Germany... My daughter and I loved it!! The diesel got 50mpg and had no trouble at all reaching its 200 kph limit (Car rentals are governed at the equivalent of about 120 mph). Plus the fact that diesel's about 20% "cheaper" (If you call $5.50 a gallon cheap) than gas over there... I wish I could have taken it back to the states...
Driving topless down the Autobahn, priceless!

Many years ago, when Hyundai just entered the US market, hubby and I visited Montreal. We saw a couple of Hyunai models, including a pickup truck, that weren't in the USA--yet.  We were told they were 'coming to the US in a few months.'   Nope-never entered the market here.

We did purchase a Hyundai Excel that just recently had entered the market; there were just 3 on the lot to chose from!! We had it for 160,000 miles!!  Not a bad car, at all.

There are more cars in Mexico that the USA does not get, like the Nissan X -Trail, sold in Japan, AustraIia and Mexico. Google it, it is very nice and a 4X4 too! As far as Peugeot I love them, excelent robust cars not like Ford or Chevrolets which are slowly dying, sorry but it is what it is.
