For a 4 cylinder vehicle, the mpg could be better. (How about a 6th gear Scion!?). I average between 24-28, have gotten over 30 at times. Gas mileage is alright if you stay under 70mph on the interstate/highways. I actually get the best mileage in town see full Scion xB review

2-3 pg less than the cube. see full Scion xB review

I expect better than 30mpg for a small car like this. Needs a taller 5th gear, or a 6th gear. see full Scion xB review
2009 4dr Hatch 158-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Best that can be said is that fuel economy is average for car of its weight and engine displacement. Automatic transmission only available in 4sp w/OD. A 5 or 6 speed tranny would be better. see full Scion xB review
2008 4dr Hatch 158-horsepower 2.4L I4
