    No, a Golf will not get 45mpg. Unless it's a Golf TDI, in which case 45mpg is very possible, especially with a stick shift, but even with a DSG. Sure, the Golf TDI may cost a few thousand dollars more than the Prius C, but you will have a very capable road trip machine, with much better stability, handling, ride, quietness, and general utility. It's a different answer to a similar question, the Prius C's strength is clearly in short hops in dense traffic, where the hybrid powertrain is at best advantage. But spend a bit more for slightly less capabilities in that particular environment and gain much broader capabilities for many different sets of driving conditions. If you only do the short hop in town running, stick to the Prius C and save a few dollars if you are sure you will never need or want anything more.

    Small cars that need to stay light have less sound deadening so will always be louder than bigger cars. Physics does not lie. If your ears and significant other disagree with physics, take a different car. To quote that very overused phrase, "it is what it is".
