The driving cycle of the WLTP ("Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure") addresses key criticisms of the NEDC ("New European Driving Cycle"). The NECD is the current measuring method stipulated by Regulations (EC) No. 715/2007 and 692/2008, and it is still legally required to publish fuel consumption and emission values determined accordingly. In particular, the new driving cycle driving profile corresponds more closely to everyday operation, and it is not just measured for a specific trim level, but also takes into account the influence of additional optional equipment.
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.
All figures quoted relate to the EU base model with standard equipment. Fuel consumption data and CO2 emission data are determined according to regulations R (EC) No. 715/2007 and R (EC) No. 692/2008 (in the versions respectively applicable), taking into consideration the vehicle weight in running order, as specified by the regulations. Additional equipment and factory-fitted options may lead to slightly higher results than the stated consumption and CO2 figures. The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions do not relate to a specific vehicle and are not part of an offer. They are provided only for the purpose of comparison between different vehicles but may differ from the actual fuel consumption achieved in real-world driving conditions which are greatly influenced by driving style and operating conditions. Additional equipment may increase the weight of the vehicle when empty and in some cases the permissible axle weights as well as the permissible total weight of the vehicle and reduce the permissible towing weights. This may lead to a reduction in top speed and increased acceleration time. Driving performance figures assume a 75 kg driver plus a 125 kg load. 2 H gas in m3/100 km.
Fuel consumption data and CO2 emission data are determined using the Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), and the relevant values are translated back to allow the comparability into NEDC, according to regulations (EC) No. 715/2007, R (EU) No. 2017/1153 and R (EU) No. 2017/1151. The values do not take into account in particular use and driving conditions, equipment or options and may vary depending on the format of tyres.
