City, highway and combined average fuel economy numbers are 20 City, 26 Highway and 22 Combined mpg for the FWD version and 19 City, 25 Highway and 21 Combined mpg for the 4WD version. This significant increase over both the outgoing models fuel economy as well as that of the competition was achieved primarily through a new, aerodynamic vehicle design, 500 pounds of weight reduction, reduced engine friction and the application of a class-exclusive, next generation Xtronic CVT®.
That really is solid fuel economy for a vehicle so large. These types of vehicles are never1 going to get 35 miles per gallon on the highway. 20 city / 26 highway is pretty decent if you need the space.
