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 24 - 32 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.

With large, powerful engines, the Nitro is never frugal: the diesel returns a claimed average in the low 30s-mpg (depending on transmission) with the petrol at 24mpg. Servicing is reasonable though, but tyres for the SXT model, with its 20-inch wheels, won't be cheap.

The petrol version emits 288g/km of CO2, but most buyers will pick the diesel that produces 228g/km or 250g/km if fitted with automatic transmission. The CRD engine isn't especially frugal - returning 33mpg.

The majority of the mechanical parts have already been proven in Jeep vehicles, so it shouldn't prove to be an unreliable car.
