2014 Kia Cadenza: Fuel Economy Update For February

March 4, 2014

2014 Kia Cadenza

February was a fairly quiet month for our 2014 Kia Cadenza as we added only about 900 miles. Our lifetime fuel economy dropped a little, as well.

For the month, we averaged 18.8 mpg, and it's fair to assume that average is because of a lot of city driving. Lifetime, we're now at 20.5 mpg, which is less than last month's 21.1. And yes, we're still below the EPA's combined estimate of 22 mpg. Clearly, our Cadenza could stand a couple of road trips to Vegas to stretch its legs. And really, there's not much else in our fleet right now that would do a better job of it, don't you think?

Worst Fill MPG: 16.3
Best Fill MPG: 24.8
Average Lifetime MPG: 20.5
EPA MPG Rating: 22 Combined (19 City/28 Highway Combined)
Best Range: 390 miles
Current Odometer: 4,444 miles

    Yes, you guys could really make an attempt to actually drive and, you know, reivew this vehicle. Otherwise you might as well give it back to Kia and find something else for the fleet.

    Low drama is nice. No cracked windshields, flat tires, CELs, leaking sunroofs, replaced drivetrains, or The Apparently Unspeakable Thing that happened to the Dart. Yes, take it on the road.

    Bankerdanny is right. You guys are dropping the ball constantly with at least 3 cars in your fleet at any given time. I'm sick of hearing about the CX-5. I will never buy that car.
