2015 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.5L I4
7-speed shiftable CVT FWD
One week old and finished a 250 mile trip, 60% freeway-40% traffic/town, and averaged just under 42 miles per gallon. One of the main reasons for the purchase and remain very please with these first mileage results.
2013 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
driven normally, fuel economy better than EPA results. (But drops fairly quickly when trying to merge or accelerate along with normal flow of traffic)
2012 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Owned less than a week but drive home after purchase was 60 miles and indications are the true mileage will exceed the EPA numbers as it shows 36mpg for half city and half congested freeway travel
2012 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Capable of 40 mpg on the highway with A/C running, 2 passengers and a load of cargo.
2011 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
30 miles per gallon on average in mostly city driving averaging 30 miles per hour or less/stop&go.
2011 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4

Regularly get 32-36 in town, have gotten 40 on the highway.
2011 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4

30 MPG in brutal, city driving; 40+ MPG on the highway. The fuel economy is better than I expected.
2011 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
30+ MPG even with a lot on stop and go. I got the 5 speed which actually may lower my MPG but I love the ability to punch it when I need to! Wish it had a 6th gear for 70 mph+ I want to see if I can hit 40-45 MPG going on I-10 doing 60-65 the whole way

Fuel economy meter gives real-time feedback.

Rated around 30 mpg, but can get up to about 40.

Although we got 38 mpg over the course of our 32,000 miles, we actually got better mileage with our previous 07 Civic over its lifetime and powertrain performance was much better for the Civic. Overall dissapointed with mileage.

Loses out slightly to the Fiesta in fuel economy.

I rented the car for a weekend & my gas mileage from Phoenix, to Flagstaff & back to Phoenix was only 28.8 mpg This car had an automatic tranny. Engine rmp always sounded BUSY & noisey

We averaged 29 mpg US gallon driving in 100 degree weather in Phoenix for 3 weeks with the AC on continuously. Driving at a spirited pace, not just cruising along.

I travel highway to work everyday (130 kms to work and back) so I was looking for a bigger car with power and great fuel economy.
2010 4dr Hatch 142-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
When new I was getting 30 MPG out of the gate. Now on longer trips at 65 MPH I get 31+ At 55 (roughly 2500 RPM I get 34 MPG.

I get about 26 to 28mpg, I got 315 miles on 12 gallons of fuel. I could probably get better mileage, but I have a heavy foot.

Good fuel economy, which I was looking for. I used the CARS Program so I needed a +10 mpg improvement.

The EPA estimates seem to be pretty accurate give or take for driving styles.

equal to my current nissan sedan, good for trips when we need to take gear but doesnt require a full size SUV that gets 20 MPG

Poor at 30MPG! Its stated highway mileage was 34MPG. Never have we got that....

I am somewhat dissappointed in the gas mileage I have been getting with my Soul. I average about 28MPG, city or highway. Not much difference between long and short trips.

For a "B-class" car with a 1.6 liter engine and :-( an automatic transmission, mileage is no better than a much larger, smoother-riding Buick Lacrosse. Disappointing. However, Kia -- fast learners -- fixed this for the 2012 models.
