The company is touting models with EPA highway ratings of 28 or more miles per gallon, with models like Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Buick LaCrosse, and Hyundai Sonata on the list.
Where are the hybrids? Heck, where are the non-hybrid cars with really decent gas mileage, like a Honda Civic?
The Buick LaCrosse gets 19 mpg in the city, and 27 on the highway, according to the EPA’s own site, FuelEconomy.gov. 19. Nine-frickin’-teen miles per gallon is not green.
Actually, none of the Hertz “Collections” qualify as entirely true to the adjective given. Their Fun Collection, inexplicably, includes things like the Chevrolet HHR, a PT Cruiser ripoff that resembles a ’49 Suburban, and, well, the PT Cruiser.
Still, 28 mpg on the highway sounds impressive, especially for something that qualifies as a mid-sized sedan if you haven’t driven any recent mid-sized sedans.
