My mileage at an average of 31-32mpg for a 50/50 mix of driving.
My driving style is fairly mild overall.

I am only at about 500 miles new, but expect this to go up a bit
gradually as it warms up and car breaks in a bit.

Dang, what am i doing wrong? i have the 2017 5 door sport with CVT, and am getting around 26-27 mpg, with a 55/45 split of highway/city driving.

Im currently sitting at 593 miles, so I'm hoping mine gets better after that 1,000 milestone.
Guess i just have a heavy foot

BTW, I put a few more PSI in the tires thinking it would help the ride and mileage - but don't
go overboard. it says on the door for the Limited 33/32 and I went to like 38/37
Tires are rates to 51, but would not go above 40. The dealer gave me the car with it at
like 41/40 or so and was told that was why, but found the ride a bit floaty and bouncey,
so I backed it off and much better now. Is that helping the mileage? Who knows...


I have a fairly easy foot after driving a hybrid for 8 years, so maybe I am just
a feather-foot?

I did have an old Saab that had alot of carbon build-up and then the values burned out.
Got rebuilt, but I was told I didn't drive the car hard enough (to blow out the carbon)!
It was a turbo, but I think poor design.

Slightly worried about that because of the direct injection, but I'll save the harder driving
for on ramps and passing, etc.

I'm at about 1,600 miles now with my 5 door limited. On my typical commuting week with about 50/50 I'm getting around 30 now (which has improved since the breakin period. On trips where it's been around 75-80% highway (with the cruise set at between 65 and 75) I'm getting 34 or better! Very happy with that. Oh, and I LOVE the adaptive cruise! Not quite the self driving car yet, but close

I have a 5-door premium with a little over 2000 miles on it. I have been getting 26-27 mpg combined with mostly in-town driving which is about what I expected. I have taken a few trips with it of 200-300 highway miles and have gotten 38-40 mpg according to the car! I haven't been able to do an actual calculation as my fill-ups didn't line up with the trips. I have seen my mileage slowly improve as I have put more mileage on the car.

Hi, I'm getting a bit confused here coz I'm using Km/l for mileage back here. You guys using imperial gallon or US gallon when measuring in MPG? Thanks

I have the Sport trim. Not sure what my MPG is but usually I get about 300 miles per full tank of gas. Just over 5100 miles now & only had it 2 months today.
