IIRC, my 2.0 IDE would struggle to achieve high 40's sitting at a steady 56 and drafting an HGV. At the higher speed and without the aerodynamic advantage of sitting in a large vehicle's wake, I'd say high 30s was more realistic to be honest.

29mpg was my typical motorway average. Then again, I did tend to cruise at 80 where possible.

The 2.0 IDE never lived up to its published fuel economy figures. Well mine didn't, at least. I don't know if the VVT is better or worse.

2010 Laguna III Initiale.
