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

Bring the tdi diesel to the US and problem solved. 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

Less than I had hoped for at around 25mpg average. see full Volkswagen Tiguan review

I have calculated my gas using the onboard computer a few different times in mixed driving and am getting a consistent 25/26 mpg. That's without hard acceleration or driving above 70 MPH on the highway. see full Audi Q5 review

We initially went in looking for a commuter vehicle with High mpg... but the sport they had jumped out at us and we were on the hunt for one... in the wife's daily 45 mile drive to work she's averaging 20 mpg which is comparable to the Audi's 4 cylinder and my truck's 8 cylinder. see full Audi Q5 review

I worry about escalating gas prices here in CA, but I got about 23 mpg in Europe and hope for that here. Not great, but close to the turbo and if people push the turbo to make up for the lesser power, as I would, the mileage is a wash. see full Audi Q5 review
