Always want more MPG but it is at least 25% better than my 2006 Ford Explorer. After 15K miles of highway, city and occasionally pulling a 5'x10' trailer, I'm averaging exactly 20.9 MPG. see full Kia Sorento review

For a rather large crossover the fuel economy is absolutely amazing, check it out, it speaks for itself, and in the frist month we are getting exactly the rated efficiency, very pleased. see full Kia Sorento review

Horrible fuel especially in stop and go traffic. I drive approximately 30 miles per day and within a week the take is nearly empty. see full Kia Sorento review

my commute is very short and I am averaging 16mpg despite the 'eco'light being on, which sucks see full Kia Sorento review

The window sticker said it would get 29 mpg on the highway. I did a 500 mile trip and averaged 25 mpg. On my last 5 vehicles I averaged 2 to 3 mpg more than the window sticker when on the highway. Something is wrong with this picture. see full Kia Sorento review
