Not the MPG I was expecting!!
Added: 8th of March 2016
I've only had the car (Blue Active) since the beginning of January. I suppose you could say it was a bit of an impulse buy as we lost our car (Citroen DS4) in the Boxing Day floods. I was pleasantly surprised with all the gadgets etc in a relatively cheap car and I when I saw the advertised MPG (70+ average) and the very good rating on various sites, decided to purchase it. The first thing I noticed was that the MPG gauge only goes up to 50 (a bit odd for a car that can do an average of 70+) and no matter how careful my driving, I cannot get anywhere near this figure!! The car (64 plate) had done just over 12K miles and had a FSH. It's now just about to hit 14K and my average is about 40 MPG (My 6 year old Honda Civic 2.2 CDti with 78K could average 42 mpg!!). The other small gripe I have is that the windscreen fogs over very quickly almost as soon as soon as the AC is switched off and I select another heating mode (such as the foot well for instance) as you cannot have both on at the same time (something i'm not familiar with in all of my other cars). It is a very comfortable car to drive and the space for my family of 5 adults is great with plenty of rear leg room, I just wish that manufacturers would stop hyping up the mpg's (when we all know how they achieve them). I've just entered into a 4 year finance deal for this car and not happy with the way I've been misled to be honest. I have a sports car for fun driving and mpg is not an issue with this (even though it's almost exactly what is stated @ 18 - 22 mpg). This is my daily for work and the other mundane stuff which is an average of 50 miles per day, so it was all about mpg for me
