A few days ago we announced that prolongábamos to 100,000 km our long-term test Renault Mégane 1.6 dCi to 130 hp, originally planned for 50,000 km. Past today as the theoretical Ecuador, we must recognize that the car is in top form. Of course, time is feeling and sensation when driving it are obviously not entirely new car. It's something completely normal.
To complete this first phase of our long-term test with the Renault Megane 1.6 dCi 130 hp, we began our usual measurement test to check their status today and its evolution. In this first article today on how to repair currently their actual consumption in road and city, usually vital numbers for the user. And we must recognize that the results have surprised us a lot.
Against its direct competitors in the segment compact, the best sellers, the Renault Mégane 1.6 dCi opened a major breakthrough. When We started the test with 7,161 km on your counter (he was shot), their consumption were on par saver that also Opel Astra 1.6 CDTi 136 hp. On the road, they were spending 4.6 and 4.5 l / 100 km, respectively, and city 5.6 and 5.7 l / 100 km. For the same consumption and runs a Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDi 150 hp employed 4.9 and 6.3 l / 100 km; he Seat Leon with the same engine, 5.0 and 5.9 l / 100 km; and the Peugeot 308 2.0 HDi 150 hp, 5.3 and 6.8 l / 100 km. More as we see in all cases.
Well, our astonishment is that, more than 40,000 km later, our Renault Megane dCi 130 hp 1.6, now with 51,002 kilometers counter, it has lowered average consumption of 10.15 percent. So, their actual consumption is now 4.2 l / 100 km in highway, and of 5.1 l / 100 km in city. Spectacular, no doubt.
We look forward in the coming weeks and the completion of testing to see if a car and then "old" is able to further lower these extraordinary real consumption. Today, yes.
