There are two main reasons for poor fuel economy, your catalytic converter are clogged or uou need a complete tuneup. You can get poor economy with under or over inflation or tires.

Check your air filter. Larger rims and tires help a little. Are you sitting in a lot of traffic or letting the car idle a lot for stops. 14 mpg sounds really low, you might have a mechanic check on the fuel injection system for clogs or faulty injectors. I have the 2012 200 LX 4 cylinder and it does pretty well in the city. Take everything out of your trunk that you don't need to be hauling around with you.
