It gets as good or better mileage in pure city driving as a standard WRX which is about 19-21 mpg if you never see a freeway and on run light to light.
Those numbers are awful for a modern four cylinder car of this size. Using a WRX as a benchmark is a low achievement, whenever the new WRX comes out it needs to perform 20-30% better.
