I am getting 30+ MPG in mixed 50/50 city/hwy driving. Hwy MPG if <70 MPH is easily 34 MPG+. If it had 7 gears, MPG at 70+ would be far better. see full Audi A3 / S3 / RS3 review

While the 2.0T has power to spare, it can also achieve excellent economy when driven lightly. I average 26 mpg/city with spirited driving, and I hit 32 mpg/highway easily (36+ mpg when babying it). The DSG transmission is more efficient than a manual too! see full Audi A3 / S3 / RS3 review
