Autoweek tested all the 40mpg club and the two that could sustain 40mpg even at 70mph in real world driving were the Golf TDI and the Mazda3 SkyActiv.
That they also happen to be towards the sporty side of their segments doesn't hurt, either.

So basically we'll be getting a $2500 car with some safety bits added and a terrible automatic transmission for something like $9000, or about a $5000 markup over cost.
The ONLY thing about the Tata Nano that's worthwhile about it is the super cheap price. If you want a $10K car, just get a cheap Yaris or similar.

"If you want a $10K car, just get a..." decent used car. Fewer compromises.

That's really the same thing, though.
"For you, only 4x markup..."
Americans might be into fads, but we're not complete idiots.
