* Declared fuel consumption and CO2 emission rates are determined according to the technical requirements and specifications of the latest European Regulations (EC) 715/2007 and (EU) 2017/1151. In compliance with the WLTP fuel consumption and CO2 emission information of the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) approved using the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). WLTP will completely replace the NEDC by the end of 2020 at the latest. The implemented standard test procedures allow comparison between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. While NEDC is deactivated, WLTP fuel consumption and CO2 emission values are converted to NEDC. Since some elements of the tests have changed, there will be some changes in the previous fuel consumption and emission values, that is, the same car may have different fuel consumption and CO2 emission values.
** Max towing capacity may vary depending on the vehicle load, configuration, accessories, and the number of passengers.
