Bigger cars/crossovers have caught up with my 08' focus in terms of fuel economy

I have an 08' focus coupe, it's rated around 35 mpg highway. I don't know how accurate the dashboard thing is but it gave me 40mpg last time I checked.

Anyway, those new big crossovers that can get around 35mpg, if that kind of technology was put inside a lighter and smaller vehicle such as my focus which weights around 2,600 lbs, what do you think the fuel economy would be?

Sucks that as cars are getting more fuel efficient they are aslo getting bigger and heavier.
