    Not all cars have the same efficiency, but one thing is for sure - if you are making horsepower, and pull around some weight, you'll use fuel. It doesn't matter if you have a tiny engine, a large engine, a turbo, a supercharger, or any other combo. Under load, I believe N/A engines are actually more efficient than forced induction (yes, even turbo, look up BSFC). So all things equal (they never are), you'll do better with an N/A engine if you plan to drive it hard more often. That said, I wonder if this car can hit 20mpg at a steady, reasonable cruise.
