Poor mpg on 2015 year 2.0 Diesel S Max


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I have recently purchased 2015 smax. Its a 210bhp version with 2.0 diesel engine. I am getting around 40 mpg on the motorway with all meters setting being reset. I am not a fast driver and always stick to 70mph.

Is there something wrong with my car or is this mpg normal?

I was a bit shocked when I bought mine, it’s the 180bhp diesel. Then I realised the car weighs 2ton. I would say your mpg is about the norm fir the smax.

My one 2.0 207bhp does in average 41-42mpg. 

On motorway 46mpg, tyre grade will also play a significant role ~5%

Not sure you will see any difference with tyres, unless you go down the cheap route. Mine come with continentals from new, then changed to Michelin’s, 245/45/19. And run 17 inch steel wheels with Continental snow tyres for the winter 235/55/17.  To be honest, I can’t say I notice any difference in mpg between all 3 tyres, it’s more a handling and noise difference.
