Equipment specifications and technical data of serial models apply to the model range offered in Germany. There may be discrepancies for other countries.
The specified consumption and emission values were obtained according to the legally required measurement procedures. Since 1 September 2017 certain new vehicles are already undergoing type-approval according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure, WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From 1 September 2018, the WLTP will gradually replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values measured according to the WLTP are in many cases higher than those measured according to the NEDC. You can find additional information about the differences between the WLTP and the NEDC at https://www.volkswagen.de/wltp.
Currently, communicating the NEDC values is still mandatory. For new vehicles that are type-approved according to WLTP, the NEDC values are derived from the WLTP values. The additional specification of WLTP values can be given voluntarily until their compulsory use. If NEDC values are specified as ranges, they do not refer to a single individual vehicle and are not part of the offer. They are only used for the purpose of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (add-on parts, tyres, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. These equipment and accessories, as well as weather and traffic conditions and the individual vehicle handling affect fuel consumption, power consumption, CO₂ emissions and the driving performance values of a vehicle.
