Same consumption as my Scenic III 2.0 Auto.

If I drive 65/70MPH I can just squeeze 40mpg on the motorway. After nearly 2,000 miles I think the motor is loosening up and the fuel economy is improving. I wish they did the big diesel/auto combo in the Scenic.

Anyone had success in chipping the petrol version for more power/torque? I think the motor isn't beefy enough enough for lugging around such a heavy car with the auto box.
