I once read that the 120d had the best relation between power and consumption, but didn't expect that!
Last weekend I had a trip in the Norwegian mountains. Start in Oslo at sea level, then up 1000 m and down to Oslo again. 350 km distance, average consumption 4,6. Average speed 80 km/h. No aggressive driving, just cruising. A typical figure on coyntry roads, and it has gone down since I got the car in May.
Tight city traffic is 6,5 l/100km, but normal figure is 6,0.

Even when pushing the car heavily it doesn't drink very much more!

I am very pleased. Less consumption than my previous 71 hp Smart 1,0

Norwegian speed limits are low - Max 100km/h on the relatively few motorways.
80 km/h on country roads. Cruising the Autobahn in 180 would of course give other figures.....
