I’m seriously contemplating buying a Tourx but I’m concerned about fuel economy. I’d appreciate it if some Tourx owners would post their real world experience with fuel economy both highway and mixed driving. Thanks.
My Sportback is about the same. But I don't baby the throttle. I get 9.8 L / 100km ( 23 mpg ) which is 90 % city driving. If I drove like most folks I would get better mileage.City MPGs, I do run a little lower than 23. But that's very short drives also, to and from a train station.
My longer highway runs, it sits around 33. Not bad for a heavy little 2.0T
Very promising when a Subaru Outback 3.6R is only getting 22-24 in a slower performer and CVT. Remember these are real world num era provided by owners.Those figures from Fuelly are not promising. Thanks for posting.
You’re right on all points.Given the AWD, size/weight, and power, it compares well against others in it's class. This is the price you pay primarily for the AWD, though. I assume that OP's MKZ is a 4 cylinder FWD version, while the 4 cyl AWD is rated very close to the TourX (maybe 1 mpg better) and every 6 cylinder MKZ is rated far worse than the TourX.
TourX - 21 city / 29 highway / 24 combined
Outback 3.6R - 20 / 27 / 23
Volvo V90 CC - 22 / 29 / 25
Even the relatively tiny comparators don't do significantly better:
Audi Allroad - 22 / 30 / 25
VW Golf Alltrack - 22 / 30 / 25
The reality is that if you want a wagon these days, fuel economy ain't going to be great because they're trying to be like SUVs/CUVs
I have about 3000 miles and just use regular gas. I have a history of having higher mileage than listed. That said, I am getting an overall average of 28mpg (commute is 50/50 highway/ surface streets) andI’m seriously contemplating buying a Tourx but I’m concerned about fuel economy. I’d appreciate it if some Tourx owners would post their real world experience with fuel economy both highway and mixed driving. Thanks.
Extremely happy. Only major flaw is auto start/stop and the fact that it can't be disabled. However, aftermarket solutions are in the works, so that'll be a non-issue soon enough. Otherwise this car has been the best bang for my buck in terms of new wagons available in the US.Thanks for letting me know. Are you Tourx owners happy with the car so far (fuel economy excluded)
