2011 4dr SUV 161-horsepower 2.5L I4

Traded in an F-150. CX-7 is not great but much better than a pick-up. Avg 22-28 mpg.
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
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.
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4

reasonable
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4

Plenty of performance when needed yet 23 mpg on highway

Again adequate but could be better.

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
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Low compared to other crossovers, due to turbo. HOwever, actual results have been higher than expected - 22/highway. (owner 8 months)
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4

Gas milage could be better. 19/22.
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4

Very poor fuel performance around town. Good improvement on long journeys

My Toyota Rav4 fuel economy was much better. Sometimes I have regrets getting 16MPG
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4

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.

FWD gets 18 city 22 highway on premium, can find others that are better but with lower performance
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Averaged 15 MPG in the city. I would have expected closer to 20 MPG out of this vehicle.
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
It just needs to be a few mpg better i.e. 20/25. This of course is exacerbated by the price of fuel.

Uses regular gas. I have been getting about 19-20 MPG with mostly rush hour highway driving.

EPA ratings of 17/24, but I've averaged barely 18 overall in my first 1200 miles...hoping for a slight improvement after break-in. UPDATE- as of 02/11/2013, I am averaging 20-21mpg overall with 4200 miles on the clock. On a recent 380-mile interstate trip, I managed 22.8mpg with the cruise set at 80mph.

A bit lower than the competitions

in city gives about 13-14 mpg. Highway is still good. I can get 21-23 mpg on highways

The fuel economy was lower than for the Murano. The plus is that it uses regular.

too low
2008 4dr SUV 273-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The AWD feature does use more gas than a FWD vehicle. Averages about 17-18 city and about 20 highway.
2007 4dr SUV 263-horsepower 3.5L V6

Could be better. I have seen 24mpg as a high on the highway....but usually closer to 21-22. Around town is 17-18.

Around town mileage is low.
