Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can be negatively impacted by a number of factors.

Examples of causes of increased fuel consumption include:

  • If the car is equipped with extra equipment that affects its weight.
  • Driving style.
  • If the customer chooses wheels other than those mounted as standard on the basic version of the model, as this could increase rolling resistance.
  • High speed causes increased air resistance.
  • Fuel quality, road and traffic conditions, weather and the condition of the car.

A combination of the examples above could increase consumption considerably.


Extreme weather conditions, driving with a trailer or driving at high altitudes in combination with fuel quality are factors that considerably increase the car's fuel consumption.
