For the European CLA 250 having the same 1991cc engine going to North America and the 7-speed dual-clutch tranny, the brochure gives fuel consumption as 8.4 litres/100km for city driving, 4.8 for highway, and 6.2 combined, which equates to approximately 28/49/38 in US mpg.

I imagine that the European standards in testing for fuel consumption must be different than the US ones, because that certainly seems too high in comparison to other comparable vehicles. For example,the automatic tranny Audi A4, with a similar size and power 4-cylinder turbo engine is listed at 24/31/26 mpg.

Does anyone know what the difference is and what we can expect for the CLA's US EPA figures?

I just came across an article on the CLA250 that sets out the US mpg figures: 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 offers impressive standard equipment for the money

"Here are the basic facts. Starting MSRP is $29,990. It’s powered by a 1.8 Liter [whoops-2.0L] turbocharged inline 4 capable of 208 HP and 258 lbs-ft of torque. 0-60 comes in 6.5 seconds and sips gas at 24 city and 36 highway."

The author doesn't give the source of that and lots of other (accurate) information in the article. I wonder how credible it is...
