Apparently, the reduction in consumption is attributed to the use the new fuel-efficient eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission with automatic stop/start function and a wide gear ratio range.

Also, the weight reduction and intelligent lightweight construction is also an important factor in reducing fuel consumption.
