I just drove our 2019 SX AWD from Virginia to CT and had actual mileage of 26.5mpg on the highway with a few bouts of bumper to bumper traffic. Around town, we were seeing 20-21mpg. It's only got 800 miles on it now.

Edit: Also, that's with winter tires! I bought an extra set of rims with Pirelli Scorpion snow tires and put them on at about 200 miles on the clock. Also, when I get back to VA in a few days, I plan to dump the factory oil and refill with Mobil1 synthetic oil.
