    Distance run south of France, 1.2 5MT: 5.3 LKH (44.6 mpg US) up to 130 kph (81 mph)



    Frechman Christian Dewaet and his team drove 399,8 kilometers in a 1.2 manual Space Star to test the car's fuel economy during 48 hours. Watch the video for the result!

    The journey took place in the Var (in the south of France) between Cassis and Cagnes sur Mer. The maximum speed was 130 km/h.

    - 45 % motorway
    - 10 % city
    - 45 % countryside

    "The result is surprising for this new model, which is not at all short of breath" (5,28 l/100 km / 44.5 mpg US).

    If you want to watch the video, here is the link:
