What MPG are you getting in your Cross? Comment Below

Please also specify the following:

1. FWD / AWD
2. Your Trim (L, LE, XLE)

3. Your % of City to Highway driving
4. Current Mileage

**Feel free to include other factors you think might possibly be influencing your individual MPG, such as driving up a lot of hills, whether you usually drive alone or with others in your car, whether you’re actively trying to get the best MPG possible (via Eco-mode) or not really, location, etc.

I’ve seen a few discussions about MPG on here but not a central thread where everyone just reported their MPG.

Toyota claims the FWD gets 31/33 and the AWD gets 29/32 (City/Highway)

i will comment after I’ve had my new XLE FWD Cross for a couple weeks.

May not make much difference, but I think model level should be up there with the 3 main criteria. Not a huge difference in weight, but every little bit might make a difference.

I agree. Edited.
Here is my Mileage. About 1,400 miles on the odometer.
1. FWD / AWD
FWD
2. Your Trim (L, LE, XLE)
XLE.
3. Your % of City to Highway driving
90% "City." Actually small town rural driving on 2 lane roads.

10% highway. Only one trip on a highway. 36 MPG.
4. Current Mileage
32-35 MPG. Calculated by me not the vehicle; I keep a record of all MPGs.

Other Factors. I drive mostly alone, sometimes with one passenger. I drive with a light foot trying to stay in ECO mode. Mostly flat roads (Florida). Use A/C about 70% of the time (it's always hot here in summer and fall.) :cool:

Thanks for the thorough response! I‘d be thrilled if I can achieve the MPG you’re getting. Well done!

I'm a little puzzled by this, but here's some real-world data. I had to go on a trip out of town this weekend in my new AWD Cross LE. Due to it being during the break-in period, I didn't use cruise control -which means my speed was constantly wavering between 40 and 65mph with RPMs between 1,000 and 3,000. I exited several times and took back roads with speeds varying between 25 to 45 mph. I made stops every 20 to 40 miles. I wasn't at a steady RPM or speed for more than 30 seconds at a time.

I filled up my tank in Weldon Spring, Missouri, then drove as described to Mount Pleasant, Iowa where I filled up again. The distance between fill-ups was 192 miles, and the tank took 4.9 gallons to fill back up at the second stop. That is 39 mpg! While I won't be driving like that moving forward (I'll be doing mostly highway miles at 70mph+), it was very surprising to see that number.

Joe and i64, thats amazing! Really glad to hear people getting such high MPG, well above Toyota’s own estimate. For those who do their own MPG calculation, how close / accurate would you say that is compared to the Cross’ onboard MPG computer?

I’ve had my cross for 2 weeks now and I’m averaging around 30 mpg in the city.

the key I have found to getting the best MPG is easy on the throttle, you can drive fast, but don't accelerate hard. hwy at 65-70 with easy throttle control is very consistently 40+ here in MB.

the onboard computer takes a while to get the calculations close, but they are comparable, maybe off a little but you can feel confident I'm the calculations if you always calculate yourself but miss one every once in a while
