Kia Sportage Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Many people probably decided on a Kia, and specifically a Sportage over other makes and models because of the advertised fuel economy numbers. Since day one, this vehicle ALWAYS, I want to stress ALWAYS, underachieves advertised mpg numbers. Took 2 round trips that were 360 miles one way, ALL highway, and best mpg were 26.2. That is 6 mpg LESS than advertised, and even with new EPA ratings, still 4 less. When driving a combination of 1/2 highway, 1/2 suburbs, attain 21-23 mpg which is less than "combined" mpg rating. Haven't driven an entire tank of city driving, but after measuring MPG for mostly suburb driving, get 17-19 mpg which is 3-5 mpg less than advertised city rating. Horrible. see full Kia Sportage review
