That's even better than the mpg numbers that the Mazda2 is putting up. It says 29 city and 35 highway. So good job Scion.
That's probably because you're looking at the wrong information.

There's no way the same vehicle with the same engine will get a different MPG rating, even the hatch will be the same.

Where did you get your information from?

Must be something to do with how they tuned the engine this time around or its transmission options... same engine different MPG's.
It's all in the Transmission:


With the six-speed automatic, the 2016 Mazda 2 gets 33 mpg city and 43 mpg highway, a major jump from the old car’s 28/34 mpg. The six-speed manual isn’t far off at 31 mpg city, 42 mpg highway, again a major improvement over the 2014 five-speed model’s 29/35 mpg. The Mazda 2 uses the company’s new 1.5-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder, which boasts direct injection, high compression, and other internal tricks. It’s shared with the overseas-market Miata and makes 129 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 111 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm. Likely, we won’t see the diesel or the smaller 1.3-liter engine, which musters only 91 ponies and 89 lb-ft. That’s way too slow for us Americans.
