Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can be affected negatively by several causes.

Examples of reasons for increased fuel consumption are as follows:

  • If the car is equipped with extra equipment that affects the car's weight.
  • The driver's driving style.
  • If the customer has specified wheels larger than those fitted as standard on the model's basic version then rolling resistance increases.
  • High speed results in increased wind resistance.
  • Fuel quality, road and traffic conditions, weather and the condition of the car.

A combination of the above-mentioned examples can result in significantly increased consumption.

Consumption is higher and power output lower for fuel with an octane rating of 91 RON.


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.
