EPA’s gas mileage ratings drop for some 2017 models

EPA's gas mileage ratings drop for some 2017 models
The 2017 Volkswagen Passat will see a drop in gas mileage under the new EPA ratings.

The EPA’s gas mileage ratings for 2017 will make some folks change their minds about which vehicle to purchase.

New-car shoppers will see mileage numbers on the window stickers of many 2017 model-year cars that are lower than their 2016 predecessors, even though the cars have no mechanical or aerodynamic differences.  It’s due to a change in the way that the Environmental Protection Agency calculates window-sticker gas mileage in an effort to better reflect real-world mileage, according to the agency and automakers.

EPA’s gas mileage ratings drop for some 2017 models

The change could meaningfully affect EPA ratings on nearly 30% of all new cars, a Cars.com analysis of 2017 model-year EPA data indicates.

The analysis looked at the top 75 best-selling vehicles through July with no mechanical or aerodynamic changes. Out of that group, there were 84 variations of individual vehicles (the V-6 versus the four-cylinder, for example). Twenty-three of those, or 27.4%, received a lower EPA highway and city combined driving mileage rating for the 2017 model year.

The revisions could cause consumers to change their minds about models. Bill Meyer, a Kansas City attorney, saw that the 2017 Volkswagen Passat that he has been eyeing fell 4 miles per gallon, from 38 mpg to 34 mpg, in its EPA highway mileage rating, and 2 mpg combined.

“When I looked at the window sticker, I thought, ‘Wow, this is taking a big hit,'” Meyer said. “Why is there such a mileage discrepancy? Thirty-four is not nearly as interesting to me as 38. So it’s making me rethink my decision.”

Want 100 mpg +?  Visit Ron Westphal Chevrolet and see the new 2017 Volt

Models seeing the drop of a single mile per gallon in their combined ratings included versions of Honda Accord, Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Sonata. Versions of the Volkswagen Passat and Toyota Camry Hybrid fell by 2 mpg in combined highway and city driving.

The recalculation means shoppers cannot compare 2017 mileage numbers to their 2016 predecessors, but Cars.com has learned the EPA plans to address this soon with updates to its website that will allow shoppers to compare the new numbers with models as far back as the 2011 model year.

Real-world mileage shouldn’t change for drivers, but the EPA ratings could fall noticeably in the agency’s biggest adjustment since it issued sweeping changes to window-sticker mileage ratings nearly a decade ago.

The analysis turned up more changes than in the EPA’s own checks into gas mileage on 2016 model-year cars. The agency ran 1,209 fuel-economy results from the 2016 model year through the agency’s updated calculations. Just 15% of that group — 186 variations — fell by 1 mpg in combined. Thirteen, or about 1%, increased by 1 mpg. The combined mileage stayed the same for the remaining 84%.

EPA figures are seldom whole numbers, so rounding can mask — or exaggerate — actual changes. Some cars may actually see their values increase, the EPA notes, but the difference is “so small and subtle” that the perceived change could be more the result of rounding.

“Some of those changed because they were 26.4 before and now they’re 26.6 after,” says Byron Bunker, director of the compliance division at the EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality. “When you change these methodologies you’ll move some more for rounding.”

EPA’s gas mileage ratings

When the EPA issued its broad update of fuel-economy ratings back in 2008, it required automakers to go from two testing cycles to five, adding tests for things such as cold-weather operation, higher speeds, faster acceleration and air-conditioning usage. It also tried to reflect other real-world factors such as road conditions and wind.

Still, a lot of automakers stuck with two-cycle testing and applied what’s called a “curve fit” — a mathematical correction that aligns the results from two cycles to a hypothetical five-cycle test. The EPA developed the math from data it gathered from 2002 to 2006.

“The manufacturer can choose to run all five or run just the city-highway [cycles] and just apply the curve fit,” explained Ryan Harty, who manages Honda’s environmental business development office. “Not all labs have that [five-cycle] capability, and I think EPA recognized that.”

New Lease Specials Pages

These pages will display the nationally advertised lease payments on our most popular Chevy models.  Your payments may vary.  Remember, all advertised lease specials do not include sales tax, doc fee and license plate fees.  Required down payments vary.  Each payment comes with it’s own disclosure.  Mileage requirements, downpayment etc. are all listed in the disclosure but if you have any questions, just call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630.  Or, drop by our showroom anytime.

Reasons to Lease

Clients that like to drive something new every few years or so generally prefer leasing because it’s so easy.

1:  You are guaranteed not to have any negative equity.  Try getting out of a 72 month finance contract after two years and you’ll find out about negative equity.

2:  When your lease is over you just walk away.  No trade-in hassle.  There is a $350 disposition fees but that is usually waived if you re-lease or purchase another Chevy.

3:  You have no maintenance headaches.  Your vehicle is under warranty pretty much the entire time of your lease.  And, 4 free oil changes are includes at no additional charge.  You could actually lease a new Chevy for 24 months and pay ZERO in maintenance during that time.

4:  Clients get to drive something new all the time.  It’s kind of like waiting for the latest smartphone.  No one wants to wait for the latest and greatest.  Why wait for all the newest features when you can get something new every few years?

5:  Lease Loyalty.  GM often offers additional incentives to those folks that are currently in a GM lease to encourage them to re-lease.  Hey, extra rebate money is always good, right?
