Does the Focus just have low mpg?

I used to have a 2006 cobalt coupe base model, and when I wrecked it I got a 2013 focus base. Both have roughly the same # of gears, are standard, amount of hp. is equal, and the power to weight is about the same (did the math). However I could drive like a dick with a 2.2 L and get 38 mpgs on average, and mid 50's when I tried. Now with a salvage title it gets 33 mpg with dented fender and sides, in town. Dents make it get 31 on highway. (miss the econ gauge and oil life meter which worked of the number engine revolutions) My new focus is nowhere near that which i will admit to the break in but drive the same way. What I want to know is that will driving the same with a standard get me less or more for results of mpg? I mean if a car with a bigger direct injection engine of the same weight can get better mpg where did ford go wrong?
