    Middling numbers for sure. The Volvo S60 with its turbo and supercharged mill producing almost as much power returned 23.5 over its Edmunds stay. (and was routinely criticized for it)

    I wish they would talk about this car more besides a monthly MPG report.

    In their own words, Edmunds used it "as a commuter." Then they took it on one highway trip...a whole 870 miles...whoopee.

    The worst fill on my 2014 coupe was 22.9 mpg, the best was 31.9. Over the 3150 miles I've owned the car it's averaged 26.6 mpg overall. Considering the performance those mpg numbers suit me fine- although I'm certain that MPG craters when it starts serving as my instructor car at HPDEs this summer...
