- '18 CX-9 Signature
My GTR is averaging about 2 mpg lower than my 2014 CX5 touring or about 26 mpg of urban easy driving. I found that the easy way to get lower mileage is to not drive smoothly and using the power often. There is some technique to using turbo power in an efficient manner. Ed
This has been my experience with my CX-9 as well. I would guess that getting up to speed faster means the engine spends less overall time in the upper RPM range, leading to better mileage?
