24.25 here after 2000 miles, I have a t3 automatic momentum. 85% city trafic with a daily trafic filled route of 9 miles each way. Get 35-39 on longer highway journeys but otherwise 24-25 mpg for city trafic. Hope it improves with time.

Love the car generally and it's really great to drive but was hoping milage was better, but it might come and I don't really drive economical (ac on at all times, phone cabled, and the route has a ton of short acceleration/brake bursts).

Im looking forward to the (for me) very low consumption.

As mentioned in the what are you coming from thread I ordered a T5 Twin Engine to replace my Porsche Cayenne, on my normal daily driving that was returning about 28L/100km what ever that is in MPG I do not know but it basically meant filling a full tank at least once a week for about 400km per tank ☹️

Exactly, we calculated the the petrol / insurance / tax costs for the Cayenne (owned) were the same as the leasing + petrol costs for a new T5 Twin Engine, and no time needed to be spent wrenching on an old car in the snow. Win - Win. Down side is i'm now driving a V40 D2 as a long term rental until delivery in May / June
