Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 54 - 74 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Pick the 1.3-litre diesel for high fuel economy and if you do get the official average fuel consumption of 74.3mpg you’ll be doing well.

There’s a definite green theme running through the Ypsilon. Two of the engines emit 99g/km of CO2 emissions making the supermini free from road duty and free to enter the London Congestion Charge.

With the same underpinnings as the Fiat 500 and the Ford Ka, the Ypsilon should fare well. The engines have been proven, especially the 95bhp 1.3-litre diesel as it can be seen in the Fiat Panda, the Fiat 500, the Vauxhall Corsa and the Vauxhall Meriva.
