Kia Soul Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2013 4dr Hatch 164-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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.

30+ MPG

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.

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

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

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.

good enough

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

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.

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 car its size, 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.
