What do you anticipate the mpg rating of the MKC to be?

I just took a look at the ordering guide for the MKC that is posted on our forum. No fuel economy numbers in it yet, which means it must be going through testing now or in the near future. Any guesses or expectations of what the MKC's fuel economy will be. I would hope that the vehicle is getting into the mid-20s for fuel economy. Does that sound right to everyone?

Mid 20's to high 20's is ideal.
If they can break the 30 MPG mark, it will do wonders for them. Just the initial blast of automotive media raving about how good MPG's are will do a lot for them. All eyes on MKC.

If the MKC can outdo its counterparts in the fuel economy game then it will be a really strong competitor in its segment. Does anyone know what the current class leader is?

I would say high 20s for highway. The base 2.0L will probably have very similar numbers to the Escape.

The 2.3L is harder to say but I think it should still be very good mileage.

2013 Escape averages 23mpg on fuelly.com

Does the Escape have the same engine as the MKC? Would you include the GLA in this segment? The GLA gets 33.1 mpg. So it would be far behind what Benz is doing.

Not sure if the MKC is positioned to be a global vehicle but if it is or turns out to be in the future, what could we expect MPG's to be like on a MKC diesel?

The GLA also comes with a 2.0L so it is definitely comparable.

The GLA uses the 2.0-liter turbo four thatís found in the CLA250, which produces 208 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque from 1200 revs.

Are you sure it gets 33mpg?

Maybe highway..

I'd love to pull up the Ford Escape highway mileage but the www.fueleconomy.gov website is not loading at all for me because my internet is amazing.

that is true.
going to be tough for the MKC to reach GLA mpg numbers. Either way it should get great numbers for what it is.
one thing to question is what light weight tech are they going to use if any?

Is it really? I'd imagine the GLA being a Mercedes is going to be pricey.

The GLA seems like it contends directly with something like the MKC.
