I have this engine and I average around 30mpg. I would also add that is also driving very economically. It’s a big, heavy car and a powerful engine so think this is actually quite a good return.

I have the exact same model 2017 registration. Driving carefully & using the brim to brim method to calculate, my overall average is 35.74mpg using records from the last 2.5 years. :)

Short runs - 3 to 5 miles in traffic - about 25mpg. Longer open road/motorway runs 33- 35 ish. Driving my last Audi A3 I was archiving 44 - 47 mpg. As said above it's a big (relative) heavy AWD car. If your main concern is fuel consumption then this is not the car for you. That said there's a lot to like about the Sportage!

Depends on your journeys. It will top 40mpg on the motorway if running at a steady 70mph.
Or you'll see low to mid 20s in town or anywhere that requires erratic acceleration.

Though TBH, you have bought a heavy SUV with the thirstiest engine, if fuel economy is your concern, you've bought the wrong car.

I've had around 36-37 on long runs with just me in it lol.

Did a little journey earlier with the wife, just under 15 miles and reading stated 32.8.

Long term trip computer is reading around 27.7 mpg I believe.

I have a really long drive planned soon (all being well) and will see what it returns on that one.

Yeah the times I've seen 40 have been on mega long distance - I.e. Hampshire to Scotland.
