Your mileage seems a bit low for the Cross' stated EPA mileage. If your Cross is new (less than 1,000 miles) the engine isn't broken in yet and that can affect mileage. MPGs should increase after break-in. Of course personal driving styles and other things can affect your mileage. Here's a link that discusses this issue:

I will say this my city driving MPG is way low. At times its like yours 24-26/27 but my highway is 30-32. Yes I know driving style is a factor but for me I think the factors that hurt mine are 1. That I live in the mountains here in East TN and 2. the slow from a start acceleration which leaves me pushing it harder than I feel like I should. Hence why I will be having it tuned here soon.

Either way though I still love the car and do not regret it whatsoever.

How's your MPG now? Did it increase to the EPA estimate?

I got mine Crorolla Cross AWD LE around April and my average MPG is between18- 19 is it normal? I'm currently is 970miles. How long does it take to break in the car and do I need to have an oil change around 1k? Please help.

AWD can drag down the mileage but yours sounds low. I just passed 1,000 miles. Around suburban areas (rarely over 50 mph) my FWD XLE gets 33-34 mpg. On highways 35-36 mpg. I'm running the A/C all the time in the Florida summer heat. 🥵🔥.

I was taught to drive with an "egg" under the accelerator i.e. moderate acceleration from stops. It helps. I don't use auto Start/Stop either.
I don't believe an oil change is "required" at 1,000 miles. YMMV. Read the maintenance book recommendations that came with the CC.

I try not to use AC and running between 25mph - 50mph rage most of the time in NYC. If it is really way below EPA what I should do? Please advise, do you think I might have a defected model? CC AWD LE

You need an oil change 10k or 1 year which ever come first, after they service mine 5k it change a little bit. First 3 day i average 33 combine, now back to 23 mpg combine.
