Only had a couple of runs on mine, but impressed so far with economy. First, commute home from work, almost all dual carriage way out of Leeds and motorway, 12 miles 46mpg.

Just been out for a spin to see what she’s like on country roads, and opening her up, still managed 44mpg according to the log. Should get some good results on the motorway at the weekend.

Had my T4 AWd Auto for 6 months now. Last week filled to the brim, drive all week on eco mode. 320 miles.. it's thirsty very very thirsty. Albeit mainly school run which is 18 round trip twice a day then work which is further but mainly motorway. Still it's the thirstiest car I've ever had, our 2.0 TT 2015 is more economical.

You can not compare the size and weight of the TT to the XC 40. Xc40 is a heavier car and espeasily if you have AWD included in your T4. Saying that no doubt it’s not the most economical engine but not very very thirsty one.

Managed 61.4mpg on my first long trip. Really impressed with that given it’s a giant brick. Nearly getting the same sort of economy as my 2010 A3!
