Dealer model descriptions different from Mazda USA website

I've found some good pre-owned CX-3 deals - good price, low miles but dealer's vehicle descriptions don't match the official Mazda website and brochure. For example, several dealers have advertised the Touring model with leatherette upholstery but 16" wheels. Mazda info states that only the base model has 16" wheels; the Touring and Grand Touring models have 18". I haven't called anyone yet for an explanation because I'm only looking and don't to get the third degree about buying now. Are the 18" wheels an option on the Touring? Dealers also say the MPGs are 29/35 when Mazda says 28/34 for the FWD. I'm guessing the dealers don't know what they're talking about. Any help appreciated.

2016 Touring models came with 16" wheels. 2017 Touring models now have the 18" wheels that were only on the GT for 2016 as standard equipment. 29/35 was the FWD mpg for 2016. I don't know what the 2017 FWD model is rated at but know ratings often change as the methods for rating are revised.
