BMW fuel economy

MPG for BMW models varies substantially according to the type of car. Smaller, lighter vehicles like city cars and superminis typically have higher MPG, whilst large family cars or MPVs will have lower fuel economy. Fuel economy is linked to the tail-pipe CO2 emissions from a vehicle: the lower the CO2 emissions the higher the achievable MPG. Thus, buying a high MPG BMW model not only reduces running costs through lower fuel costs but also through lower emissions which may result in lower car tax and company car tax.

Four different MPG figures are included in the BMW listing above. The three official MPG figures (urban, extra-urban and combined) are derived from the 'New European Directive Cycle' (NEDC) which tests car on a rolling road. However these official MPG figures increasingly do not reflect realistic, achievable MPG figures in 2017. Therefore Next Green Car has calculated a 'real MPG' figure which is based on actual driving data. The 'Real MPG' figure is typically 20% lower than the official figures.
