I found it so amazing that the blue trim level base hardly uses any fuel A 58 combined mpg. 57 mpg in the city and 59 mpg on the highway. So the Blue is the lightest in the line up but look at what happens to the mpg when we increase the over all weight and opt for the DEL with Limited trim levels we fall all the way down to 55 combined mpg.

Not sure if it will make a large difference in planned driving but the added weight really surprised my over loosing 3 mpgs
