There seems to be several questions on the forum about MPG for the Sorento. My 2020 4th generation HEV 1.6 level 4 hybrid is returning over 50 mpg. See picture. It was on a 32 mile return trip along A and B roads, no motorways. I hope this gives some idea of its fuel consumption for those who are interested. It has even surprised me!

What is the average on the mileage since you got the car?
As trip mileage has a lot of variables. Most people are looking at what the overall average.
eg, My Stonic at one point had a trip mpg of 70 mpg (20 ish miles), but over its 18K, average was only 40 ish.

At first it was averaging around 38 mpg but that has gradually improved over time. It is now averaging around 44 mpg which includes a lot of short trips. Pretty good for such a large car. In town it seems to drive on its battery only quite a lot.

I have a HEV 2 and this is the average MPG over 5k from new, it is getting better with age, also I think the smaller wheel size help economy (and ride) but not looks so much

I doubt that wheel size makes any difference to MPG, as bigger wheels just have lower profile tyre's. So overall diameter will be about the same. Ride wise should be a bit better (y) .

Not bad for such a big car
As weather gets warmer, so MPG will get better. As will longer runs help.
