Default Lookling to get a new car

i currently have a 2007 chevy cobalt ss supercharged and i want to trade it in and get another car...

either a Audi a4/5 or a Mercedes-Benz C300/350 4Matic... one main concern is i dont want a gas guzzler like my cobalt is currently..

which do you think would be better?

I have a feeling the reason your getting bad mileage is due to your inability to stay off the gas pedal, and in that case no car is going to help you out much.

He could get a car thats pretty fast without using much throttle... I get 19MPG in my Mustang and I'm a leadfoot. I just dont have to put my foot all the way to the floor to satisfy my speed craving.

But then again I get the feeling that the OP would probably end up killing himself with too much power, he'd use it.
