    I've averaged 21.4 since I bought it 2 months ago, but that includes usually letting it warm 5-10 minutes a couple of times a day.

    Hello, everyone - just joined up. We bought a 2014 Captiva Sport in February with about 10 grand on the clock after renting one on a vacation in FL. So far our mileage is 20-21 mpg, but we do a bunch of short hops every day. It rarely sees the highway. It hurts to pull up to a gas pump, especially after the Honda Civic Hybrid we traded, but we LOVE the Captiva so far!
