Just got back from Toronto & rented an Elantra for 770 kilometers & with about 75% city driving got 32 MPG Imperial(26 U.S.).My Rio gets usually about 35 MPG under the same circumstances so even if the Government figures are about the same the Rio is more fuel efficient.On the highway the Elantra Fuel economy guage never displayed better than 6.7 Ltrs per 100 but my car showed as low as 4.9 . Elantra has smoother ride but isn't as precise handling & seemed to have less tyre noise but more engine noise under full throttle.Glad I bought the Rio :)

the Elantra and Rio are two different classes of vehicle too - compact and sub-compact.
