*) The figures stated have been calculated in accordance with the measurement method stipulated (paragraph 2, items 5, 6, 6 a of the currently valid version of the German energy labelling ordinance for cars, “Pkw-EnVKV”). CO2 emissions arising from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account for calculation of CO2 emissions, in accordance with Directive 1999/94/EC. The data does not relate to an individual vehicle and is not part of the specification, but is merely for the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle do not depend solely on the efficient utilisation of fuel by the vehicle, but are also influenced by driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the greenhouse gas primarily responsible for global warming. Note in accordance with the currently valid version of Directive 1999/94/EC: further information on official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the "Guide to fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption of new passenger cars", which is available free of charge from all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Straße 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany or at

Efficiency ratings are awarded to vehicles based on their CO2 emissions, while also taking into account the vehicle’s unladen weight. Vehicles with average efficiency are rated D. Vehicles which are better than the current average are rated A+, A, B or C. And vehicles which are poorer than average are classified E, F or G.
