Given this thread for the Mk1 Kuga:
http://www.kugaownersclub.co.uk/forum/kuga-fuel-consumption-miles-per-gallon_topic4647.html

has proved to be both a popular depository for feedback and also a source of angst for others I thought it best to start a similar thread for owners of the new Mk2 Kuga.

The thinking being it would be good to compare the two models BUT I also tend to think that some of the info as to whether someone is a Mk1 or Mk2 owner may get lost if it's all in the one thread so any MPG comparisons may not be a true like for like reflection, so here goes.

In closing I would add the same caveat from the Mk1 thread:

Clearly this is an emotive subject but if people can not be civil to each each then no matter who the posters are the topic will be locked (again) and the posters banned.

Have a whinge by all means, praise it by all means, but keep it civil and respect the views of everyone else regardless of whether you agree with them or not.
EDIT 1 : To avoid any confusion when posting in this particular thread please can you bear in mind this is the MK2 Kuga MPG thread and NOT the MK1 Kuga MPG thread!

I've already moved one or two posts out of this thread into the MK1 thread.




EDIT 2: At the request of other KOC members if you are quoting your ownexperiences/figures/feedback please could you ensure you mention your:
1) engine size (including PS size)
2) whether it's FWD or AWD
3) whether it's a manual or powershift gearbox
4) whether it's a diesel or petrol engine.


Thanks.

I quite agree with you.

Slowly working my wayover 35MPG with the Mk 2 driving on major A roads and the horrid M25.

Hi Kuga 49, what engine do you have?
Ive got the 163ps diesel unit in mine. Just broke 40 MPG. Standard tyre pressures out of the factory using cruise control for the journeys to work and back.

Thanks for the detail. Ill be keeping an interested eye on what you guys are achieving as MPG is going to be THE deciding factor in any future purchase.

I'll be on my way to Germany in the second week of April, so lots of miles extra urban, but car loaded. We'll see what it gives!

Just done a round trip of 120 mls, motorway and urban mix, its showing 40mpg, it will probably get a little better as its only done 400 mls so far.

I have just visited the Lake District and averaged 44 MPG.
My BMW 320d would have averaged about the same, so I am pleased with the performance of the Kuga. Edited by: superbock

I am getting 32 MPG urban out of my 2.0. tdci (163) Titanium X at the moment with 150 miles on the clock. I hope it gets better when it gets a few more miles on the clock.

Mine's got just under 300 miles on the clock and is averaging about 40MPG (2.0 tdci AWD, Titanium), which I'm pretty pleased about

My Kuga 2 has covered 1200kms and the computer displays 8.1 ltr per 100km (about) 35mpg. Powershift and aircon on all time.
