I'm just wondering about the REAL fuel economy in real driving condition? Toyota Canada website claim for Corolla CE/S/LE 1.8L w/ 5-spd manual :

City : 7.1L/100 KM (40 MPG)
HWY : 5.3L/100 KM (53 MPG)

Is it true? Is it less? Is it more??


For Canadian's owner, I assume you probably need around 40$ (CDN) to full the tank (regular unleaded), but how much KM are you driving with a full tank (all day driving style)?

The funny thing is Toyota claim than Corolla appear to have almost the same fuel economy than Echo... I kinda sceptical for a bigger and heavier car than Echo. Anyway, the best thing to do is to ask the OWNER about the real fuel economy! :D


Thanks!!

Same fuel economy for the corolla 2004S was posted by toyota. and i'm gettin between 7.4-10 depending on whether i use my a/c, heater, jackrabbiting, city driving, reving rpm a lot or not.

gonna try to keep my rpm around 2000rpm and see if it 'll lower my fuel economy rating.

Yes, I hope, cause almost 10L is A LOT!!

My Sentra SE-R take between 10L to 12L on sportive driving, but it was 175 HP... but my SE-R requiert premium unleaded.

Next spring I'll try to change it for a more economic's car, cause I'm driving a lot of KM each year and it cost me A LOT of gas (around 300$ each month for gas). :(

I've been getting about 500km on 38L with the XRS and there's no way I'm being fuel conscious (quite the opposite).

So that's about 7.6l/100km.

Sound good guys! :thumbup:

It appear to be a fuel economic vehicule. In the past, I own a Nissan Sentra GXE (w/ 1.8L engine, 120 HP) and I run 450 KM with 45L (regular unleaded) at max, that's mean 10L / 100KM and this is the vehicule with the better fuel economy from Nissan...

Overally, I'm satisfied of the Nissan cars I own (total of 3), they are reliable and great quality vehicules, but the fuel economy is a VERY MAJOR problem with Nissan! I don't know if they plan to do something to make thier entry level cars more fuel economic, because for my own case, I'll never buy a Nissan vehicule anymore for this reason. :thumbdown

Toyota appear to offer the best fuel economy on the entire market in all range of car (subcompact, compact, ect), but excluding electrics or diesel cars as well.
