How come some get 40, some 38, and some 37? I know mine is rated at 38 and is a sedan, and I have the window sticker from two hatchbacks, and they are 37.
Besides the fact that they re-tested a few configurations after Job 2 so that the select shift automated manual gets the same MPG rating as the standard automated powershift dct.

AM6= Standard powershift without select shift, AM-S6 is the manual mode on the DCT.

Only the SFE model is rated at 40 mpg highway, all the standard models with the DCT are 37-38 hwy on E10 regardless of being a sedan or hatch.

Job 1 build cars with the original window sticker and select shift were rated at 1 mpg worse on the highway than the Job 2 cars.
