All petrol engines already fulfil the EU6 emission norm that only comes into place in 2014. All diesel engines fulfil the EU5 emission norm. Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle (93/116/EC) made up of approximately one third urban traffic and two thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption as such. Fuel consumption levels are calculated based on vehicles with standard equipment. Special equipment (e.g. wider tyres) can have a significant impact on fuel consumption and driving performance levels.
The figures without [ ] apply to the base model with the type of transmission specified in the standard equipment. The figures with [ ] apply to the model featuring an optionally available type of transmission (see optional equipment).
