bad fuel economy, I guess thats why 2006-2008 models do have a trip computer but the trip computer was not able. 2009 to present all have same trip computer that provides MPG,distance to empty and somewhat of an improved gas mileage. see full Mazda CX-7 review

With european fuel prices you can drain your wallet refuelling this car. However when you compare with other having 260 HP it is still not so bad see full Mazda CX-7 review

It just needs to be a few mpg better i.e. 20/25. This of course is exacerbated by the price of fuel. see full Mazda CX-7 review

Pretty poor, especially under 100% city driving. Not too much less than its competitors though. Most people see the CX7 has a 4 cylinder and think great mpg. Turbos eat gas! Highway mpg is on par with other vehicles in its size and weight range. see full Mazda CX-7 review

Swapped the paper filter for a K&N filter, kept the original air box. Get over 24mpg city, close to 30 on the freeway w/ moderate hills. see full Volkswagen Tiguan review

For a small crossover/suv its pretty good. Went on a 400 mile round trip to the mountains (5,500ft elevation) for the weekend and back (2,00ft elevation) and averaged 26mpg. Day to day driving I get about 25.5mpg without trying to be conservative. see full Volkswagen Tiguan review

Our Tiguan ranges from 20-30 mpg, between city and highway cruising. It's consistently about 5 mpg thirstier than the GTI. Blame the extra weight, but there's less than 400 lbs of that, IIRC. Or blame the AWD, but it's part-time only. I blame the large aero cross-section; it stands about a foot taller than a Golf. If VW would offer a TDI in the Tiguan, they'd sell as many as they could spare to the US market. I'd be standing in line. see full Volkswagen Tiguan review

Its OK, but could be better. I see 21-22 suburban, as much as 28 on long highway trips. Premium fuel is the bigger drawback. see full Volkswagen Tiguan review
