    Thats whats happens when they put a small engine in a large heavy car though.

    has what 140 bhp and prob about 180 fl lbs trq the 1.8. Thats a hell of a barge to drag around with so little power.

    I havent done an exact test yet... but

    If I drive for miles and miles at 80 mph in the 1.2 Fiat 500 Sport, and do the same in the VXR I get about 10 mpg difference between the two

    So, either way very close at motorway speeds take your pick..
