If those numbers are accurate, it’s a little disappointing, but not too surprising. The larger, heavier Edge has better ratings with the 2.0L and 8 speed auto. We shall see how the US figures compare soon.

The edge has about the same combined mpg. The bronco sport is proving to be a well rounded vehicle. Not well rounded as in a ugly sloped back but does well both on and off road. I would argue that the edge not only does much better on road than off it, it has less utility and overall capability than the bronco sport. If I wanted a vehicle with class leading mpg I would be getting a Prius.

I get 22 mpg from my 2.0 now. I know I drive fast so I wouldn’t expect any better than that. I’d guess most people will get around 24 mpg combined in real world driving.

Note: an imperial (Canadian) gallon is .86 of a US gallon.
Did the math for anyone that didn’t want to give it a go. If true, and the conversion wasn’t already made by the news source that wrote the article, then the 1.5L BS would expect 29/33/30.

And 2.0 would come in at 24/29/26. Rounding down because realistically driving conditions used in these tests are rarely achievable day to day.

As much as I’d love believe these numbers, seems a bit optimistic, don’t ya think?

premium. Just like premium is required to get the projected horsepower, I’m sure premium gets you the estimated mpg
That is certainly the case for Mazda SkyActiv, both for maximum HP and mileage.

That said, greatest fuel economy might be with the less-expensive fuel even if MPG is less.

Coming from 18~19 mpg mixed (pre Covid) on Premium.. I can appreciate any + and yea.. maybe less-expensive fuel is the way to go to get the most M/$!
that and stay in eco mode. Coming from a Tahoe using cheap fuel. I’ll be comfortable using premium and normal mode with the bronco sport
