What do you think the gas mileage of all the different 4 cylinder engines will be? Petrol and diesel.

This might be one of the most gas efficient Mercedes Benz vehicles.

assuming the mercedes benz CLA 250 wil use the same engine as the 2013 C250, it should be a bit better than what the C250 is rated at being 22 City, 31 Highway.

My best guess would be 24 City & 33 highway since the mercedes CLA will weigh a bit less than a C-class benz

Well from what I read the 7-speed automatic transmission is capable of 24 city and 36 highway mpg thanks to its 7th gear cruising ability.

It's actually easier to compare the CLA250 to the A 250. The C class is on a different platform and likely weighs differently.

Bad assumption, it does not use the C Class engine.

The Transport Canada rating for the B 250 (same drivetrain as the CLA in a bigger car) is 7.9 L/100 km (30 US MPG) city, and 5.5 L/100 km (43 US MPG) highway.

I expect the CLA's Transport Canada rating to be a bit better, and the US EPA ratings to be about 15% lower due to their different calculation methodology.

For what it's worth, the B 250 I test drove a cuple of weeks ago averaged under 5.5 L/100 on a short highway run, according to the OBC.

Are the cla's city and highway gas mileage numbers out as yet or do we have to wait?

with the combined mileage made official i'd imagine they have city and highway numbers ready too.

I wonder why the B250 is rated at almost 8L where as the Mercedes site shows the CLA250 at 6.1 combined.

Is 8L /100km for freeway only?

I was looking at the 2013 Mercedes B-Class after viewing another thread and came across the official gas mileage number as:

6.8 l/100 km

and not 8 l/100km

Why are you guys reinventing the wheel? ;)
