They don't show up on fueleconomy.gov yet, but I just noticed that Mercedes just added them to the USA factory web site. I think it's safe to assume they'll be the official EPA figures also... 26 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. Great numbers if they're accurate!

Does this car have cylinder deactivation or engine shutdown? I struggle to get more than 18 mpg in my Infiniti G37 because I am always sitting in stop and go traffic. It is amazing how fast your mpg will deteriorate when you aren’t moving but the engine is running.

I'll believe it when I see it.

The Nissan Altima has an Highway EPA of 38 MPG and my Dad says he gets no where near that on the highway.

What is the compression ratio for this car? 38 mpg is really high for a Turbo engine.

Many 2012 cars have to RESTATE their EPA numbers and pay penalties as they are overly optimistic.
That makes me believe the current numbers are likely closer to what you will get.
My biggest concern is whether the engine shutoff and restart is as seamless as I would like it to be.
The BMW 328i has a similar concept but doesn't work that smoothly. But BMW gave the driver an option to turn off the feature.
I hope the CLA has the same option just in case the stop-start is annoying.

I have an Infiniti I35 now that estimates 18/25 but I routinely get 28-29 MPG when I'm in cruise control around 70 mph with no traffic on level ground.

Well, I have a 2012 Honda Civic EX coupe, which is rated at 39 mpg highway, and it gets 42 to 44 at my normal highway speed of 67 or 68 mph. From what I've read at various sites on the web, some manufacturers' cars do better than others in regard to the EPA mileage figures. Recently, Consumer Reports even gave Ford grief about how several of its cars didn't get anywhere near their stated mpgs in the magazine's road tests.

Agreed- my C350 Sport isn't supposed to get 32-33mpg at 75+ mph, but it does.

Yea, the auto start/stop is annoying on the BMW. I test drove a 328i recently and when the engine shut off it scared the hell out of me. Drivers can shut it off for the BMW, and I hope Mercedes offers the same option.
