The automaker says that the compact crossover will see better fuel consumption for both the 1.6-liter petrol engine and the 1.5-liter dCi diesel. The optimizations come by way of better gearing ratios for the manual transmission models.
On the combined UK cycle, the 1.6 will do 47.1 mpg UK (6.0 l/100km), which represent an improvement of 2.3 mpg. Emissions have also been slashed to 139g/km of CO2, a reduction of 8g/km over the previous model.
On the diesel front, the 1.5 dCi has a combined UK run of 57.6 mpg (4.9 l/100km). Prices will remain untouched for the 2012 model.
