Volvo XC60 T6: 17/23 mpg
Fuel economy is a real paint point for the 2014 Volvo XC60.
The base front-wheel-drive model is rated by the EPA at 18 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway. The challenge is that there are at least a handful of three-row SUVs on the market that achieve similar numbers with extra utility. If you upgrade to the T6 or R-Design all-wheel-drive models, and you'll earn 18/25 mpg or 17/24 mpg respectively, depending on the engine.
We wish we had better news regarding real-world results, but we haven't seen any better, with XC60 models returning 16 to 19 mpg in mixed conditions.
Gas mileage is lower in the EPA's city cycle than it should be.
