Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion
It's not a hybrid, but this sedan gets 42 mpg. Volkswagen is showcasing its fuel-efficiency star at the Detroit auto show, which opens to the public Saturday. The concept saves on gas through a new version of the 1.4-liter EA211 TSI engine with turbocharging and Active Cylinder Management. A coasting function and stop-start system also add to the fuel savings. The blue in BlueMotion refers to its exterior color and on lines dividing the two tones of its seats.
