Question Diesel Scenic mpg?

Hi Folks,

My wife is thinking of getting a Scenic 1.5 DCi 106 to replace her C-Max diesel. Any views on what kind of fuel economy we could expect? We do a fair few shortish runs and the C-Max (1.8TDCi) only manages about 36mpg. Will a Scenic be any better?

Mine does around 40 to 45 around town, if I do a bit of motorway driving and take it steady it'll go a little over 50 and if we go for a long run we get around mid 60's.

PS mines poorly at the moment and struggles to get over 45

Our Grand Scenic 1.9 dCi is a little heavier, but it does between 35 & 40MPG around town, depending on who's driving And will average 50+ on motorway journeys. So I'd expect a Scenic 1.5 to get at least 5MPG better.

mid to high 50's driving on the best roads in Spain and France....the longer you drive the better it gets on these roads
