10 Answers



it averages 18 mpg 16 city and 22 hghway


i get around 14mpg but i only do short trips and have got a lead foot!


lets just say not good at all,my friend gets 16l per 100km with a easy foot,with a har done expect 20-25l /100km


Pants! Very thirsty and they drink oil too. If you have one, make sure you keep it topped up regularly. Having said that, I don't think they were designed for economy.


16 mpg on da street n around 20-22 on the highway.

they are rated one of the cars with the worst mpg.


About 12.4 Lt/100 combined.


if you thrash it, about 12mpg, if you drive it economically about 20mpg, all depends if ur doing a long or short trip and the type of roads ur on but it's very thirsty


Awful on fuel and oil use but hey its a "sports" car. These are dirt cheap in 2016
