* According to Regulations (EC) No 715/2007 and (EC) No 692/2008 (in the version currently applicable). The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of a specific offer but serve purely for comparing various types of vehicles.
 
** The lower value represents the lowest measurement taken from the four phases of the WLTP cycle, using the fuel consumption of a vehicle with the most economical vehicle equipment of the relative engine and transmission combination. The upper value represents the highest measurement of the four WLTP cycle phases, taken from the corre-sponding fuel consumption of the most fuel-intensive equipped vehicle.

The daily fuel consumption of a vehicle depends very much on the individual usage profile and where it is being driven: city traffic, country roads or motorways. These differences are better accounted for by the WLTP driving cycle. Instead of calculating only the values "urban, extra-urban and combined" (as stipulated by Regulations (EC) No. 715/2007 and 692/2008,) on the basis of a more theoretical driving profile, WLTP provides four individual values for different predetermined travel profiles (low, medium, high, and extra-high) that are based on statistical surveys and the analysis of user profiles and averages. In addition, the WLTP driving cycle is much more dynamic than the NEDC and reflects higher accelerations, a higher average speed and a higher maximum speed.

The values released for the Opel Astra from June 2016 Opel show a range that can be explained as follows: The lower value is the lowest value from the four phases of the WLTP, driven with the version of the Opel Astra with the lowest consumption values for the specified engine/transmission combination. The upper value represents the highest value from the four phases of WLTP cycle, driven in the version of the Opel Astra with the highest consumption values for the respective specified engine/transmission combination. The values obtained provide a good overview and a useful indication of the expected daily consumption.

Please note, that the values based on the WLTP driving cycle are determined by using a standardized, predefined driving cycle on a test rig.

How to Benefit

More Realistic Consumption Figures.

The new WLTP driving cycle takes into account situations that are closer to everyday life than the current NEDC standard. It allows you to assess daily consumption better. The consumption values outlined in the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) are precise and easily comparable, but they are not perfect. Since the NEDC was made legally binding in 1992, cars and individual driving styles have changed significantly. To better reflect the new conditions the test parameters have been redefined in the "Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicle Test Procedure" (WLTP). They now take into account:

  • More realistic driving dynamics and outside temperatures
  • Greater test distances
  • Higher average and maximum speeds
  • Shorter stops
  • More braking and acceleration

The influence of optional equipment also plays a role in the WLTP driving cycle. This new driving cycle will be legally binding for all automobile manufacturers from autumn 2017.

What Is the WLTP Driving Cycle?

WLTP Driving Cycle

While the current NEDC determines "urban, extra-urban and combined" values based on of a theoretical driving profile, the WLTP uses "real" driving profiles drawn from a global statistical survey. The WLTP driving cycle is divided into four parts with different average speeds: low, medium, high and extra high. Each part contains a variety of driving phases, stops, acceleration and braking phases, etc. that represent everyday driving profiles. Each engine/transmission combination is tested with the most economical as well as the most fuel-intensive vehicle equipment. Starting with the Astra, Opel will test each and every model. The published values define a range from the lowest to the highest consumption for each engine/transmission combination. This gives a good indication of the expected daily consumption of each model. Please note: The values based on the WLTP driving cycle are determined using a standardised, predefined drive cycle on a test rig. READ MORE SHOW LESS

Questions About the New Consumption Values

Why is the NEDC out of date?

The NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) was introduced in 1992, however cars, roads and driving behavior have changed since then. The NEDC is an artificial laboratory test and serves exclusively to compare different vehicles, not to reflect normal consumption. This means that real consumption is often very different from the NEDC information. The main reasons include:

 

  • The theoretical driving profile does not match real user profiles.
  • Insufficient acceleration.
  • Too many stop phases.
  • Does not incorporate higher speeds, e.g. on motorways. This sets the average speed too low.
  • Gear shifting points are broadly defined by transmission type, e.g. they are the same for all cars with manual transmission.
  • Optional equipment is not being considered.

What does the NEDC measure?

The NEDC is legally binding for all vehicles since 1992. The NEDC is based on a somewhat theoretical driving profile and consists of two parts: In the first 13 minutes, it simulates a drive in city traffic with many stop-and-go phases. The second part corresponds to an extra-urban journey at a maximum speed of 120 km/h.

What are the four parts of the WLTP?

In order to determine consumption values more realistically, the WLTP driving cycle is based on a global statistical survey of real driving profiles. This includes four parts with different average speeds which are generally representative for operating profiles around the world: low, medium, high and extra high. Each phase includes different amounts and degrees of acceleration, braking, stopping, etc. that reflect everyday driving situations.
