LOL, ok, two things:

1) They are running the TDI in 6th gear at 50mph? Yeah, of course its not gonna get the same mileage as a hybrid, they are lugging the engine!... The TDI doesn't even get into it's powerband until ~1500 rpms. They need to drive the car like it is supposed to be driven.

2) Passing but not getting over 3,000 rpms??? of course its lethargic! That's using LESS than HALF of the available powerband. Max HP isnt even till ~4000 rpms!

This "review"'s test conditions feel SLIGHTLY biased...
