Considering that the '14-15 models were easily capable of far more than the original ratings anyway, imagine what these will be capable of.The most impressive part of it is that it's done with the newly revised 2017 testing methods, which knocked our 2014-2015 diesels down to 44 MPG highway. This is a HUGE improvement compared to that.
Interesting that it will be the 9 speed. I thought the diesels were going to get the 6 speed auto, from what I read somewhere else.Yes - 31/52/37 for the 6-speed manual and 31/47/37 for the 9-speed automatic.
I would expect the '18 Diesel Hatch to be 1-2 mpg behind.
It sure is!Wow bigger news!!! Is that a diesel only badge on the rear!?!?!?!!??
Better in city - and likely better than if it had been a 6-speed auto. I'm guessing the final drive/final overdrive are super tall on the manual. Will be interesting to see the gear ratios.Boy, it sure is weird that the 9 speed auto returns worse fuel economy...
