TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2013 Ford Focus

2013 Ford Focus Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 Yes, the most impressive aspect of the Focus ST's engine is its fuel economy. A Mitsubishi Evo is rated 17 mpg city, 23 mpg highway by the EPA. A MazdaSpeed3, 18/25. The Ford Focus ST easily exceeds them both, with guilt-free EPA ratings of 23/32. Not that the engine's performance isn't also impressive. With 252 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque, the limiting factor at low speeds is the ability of the front tires to transfer this power and torque to the pavement. At higher speeds it's quick, but not blazingly so. At 3,300 pounds, the Focus ST is too heavy for that. The car's quietness and refinement aren't entirely without a downside. The turbo's boost comes on as a smooth surge, not with a punch to the lower back. Consequently, the Focus ST doesn't feel as quick as it is. see full Ford Focus review

Have never managed to achieve the posted fuel economy average for this car (26), even with extremely careful driving,70% highway. Driving it hard nets only a few mpg worse than hypermile type driving. see full Ford Focus review
2012 4dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.0L I4

Decent fuel economy. Hitting over 30mpg and occasionaly above 35. see full Ford Focus review

It has more horsepower, torque and is quieter than my other car, but gets 4 mpg higher fuel economy in the same driving. see full Ford Focus review

It's relatively easy in the other Focus models to average low to mid 30's for economy. This matches the EPA estimates. But the ST struggles to achieve anything close to EPA estimates in the real world. Mileage is more like a minivan than a small sedan. They should have included better engine management (like stop/start) or even separate fuel maps for economy and Sport modes. see full Ford Focus review
