O Halloween, or Halloween, It’s a very typical celebration in the United States, and one that has gained more strength here in Brazil in recent years (Brazilians love a party, right?). The idea is to celebrate dark themes, and is celebrated annually on October 31st (that is, today).
Apparently, the Halloween has been celebrated for over 3 thousand years, with the belief was that on this day the dead rise to catch the living. That’s why it’s treated in such a dark way, with horror fantasies and things like that.
But it’s not just stories like this, movies or fantasies that scare people. In the world of cars, there is one thing that It afflicts Brazilians much more than any death: car fuel consumption. After all, if the vehicle is a heavy drinker, my friend, your finances will die (and they won’t come back).
That’s why, Autoesporte selected 10 used cars with consumption that would make anyone jealous. Check it out (and escape, if you can):
1 – Fiat Toro Volcano 2.4
Com 2.4 flex engine cannot be economical, Let’s face it. It develops a good 186 hp and 24.9 kgfm of torque and has a nine-speed automatic transmission, but consumption is very poor.
How to save fuel:
Inmetro says that, in this version, the Tour he does 6 km/l in the city and 7.7 km/l on the highway with ethanol, in addition to 8.7 km/l in the city and 10.8 km/l on the highway. See our test at launch time.
2 – Peugeot 308 Allure 2.0 2013
The recipe is almost the same as seen above. High cubic capacity engines end up drinking more. Here we have a 2.0 aspirated which develops 151 hp of power and 22 kgfm of torque. The transmission is a four-speed automatic.
In the Inmetro tests, there was no other result, o 308 it scored 4.6 km/l in the city and 7.7 km/l on the highway with ethanol, and 6.6 km/l in the city and 10.7 km/l on the highway with gasoline.
3 – Toyota Hilux SRV 2.7 flex 2021
Medium pickup trucks (those built with a cab on a chassis) They left out the flex engine to have only diesel in the catalogue. And still good.
High consumption is the main problem with these vehicles. One of the examples and this version of Hilux which, according to Inmetro, records 4.8 km/l in the city and 5.6 km/l on the highway with ethanol in the tank. With gasoline, consumption is a little better: 6.9 km/l in the city and 8.1 km/l on the highway. It’s better to stay out of this mess.
It is worth remembering that the truck’s engine is a 2.7 four-cylinder, capable of developing 163 hp of power and 24.9 kgfm of torque, with a six-speed automatic transmission. See how ours went test with the latest Hilux flex.
4 – Dodge Journey RT 3.6 2018
Big engine, big consumption. O Journey It has a 3.6 V6 that develops 280 hp and 34.9 kgfm of torque, with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Inmetro reports that the SUV achieves 6.4 km/l in the city and 8.6 km/l on the highway, always on gasoline. In this case, it’s a good thing the engine isn’t flex.
5 – Renault Logan Expression 1.6 AT 2016
Not even compacts escaped the list. O Logan It has a 1.6 aspirated engine that can deliver modest 112 hp and 15.5 kgfm of torque. The automatic transmission only has four gears, but that’s no demerit, especially considering a popular car from 2012.
The problem is in consumption. According to Inmetro, the Logan can achieve 6 km/l in the city and 9 km/l on the highway with ethanol, in addition to 7.8 km/l in the city and 11.7 km/l on the highway with gasoline.
6 – Ford Ecosport 4WD 2.0 2010
If a 2.0 is already scary, with all-wheel drive it can be even more frightening. O EcoSport in the 4WD version there was a 2.0 flex with up to 145 hp and 19.4 kgfm of torque, always with a five-speed manual transmission.
The mechanical package makes the SUV run well, but consumption is very high. According to Inmetro, the all-wheel drive EcoSport only scored 5.1 km/l in the city and 5.9 km/l on the highway with ethanolin addition to 6.9 km/l in the city and 9 km/l on the highway with gasoline.
7 – Fiat Strada Adventure 1.8 2010
A Fiat Strada changed for the better in its second generation. In addition to the four doors, changing the pickup’s engines was a great decision by the Italian manufacturer. Now there are even versions with automatic transmission and turbo engine!
It’s worth remembering that the Strada in the past was equipped with a 1.8 engine in the Adventure version. A large engine with plenty of breath for a compact pickup, as it delivers 114 hp and 18.5 kgfm (always a five-speed manual transmission).
But the charge is high to run with it: 5.9 km/l in the city and 7.5 km/l on the highway with ethanol. And 8.5 km/l in the city and 10.9 km/l on the highway with gasoline. All data is from Inmetro.
8 – Hyundai Tucson GLS 2.0 2018
Maybe one of cars that spent the longest time in Brazil without changing their appearance. O Hyundai Tucson It was the gateway for the South Korean manufacturer to become successful here. But you can’t deny that he’s a drinker.
The model has a 2.0 engine with 145 hp and 19.6 kgfm of torque, and a four-speed gearbox. The perfect recipe for getting 5 km/l in the city and 5.8 km/l on the highway with ethanol. Or 7.4 km/l in the city and 8.6 km/l on the highway, according to Inmetro.
9 – Fiat Doblò Essence 1.8 2021
A Fiat Doblò discontinued a few years ago, but its 1.8 engine with 132 hp and 18.9 kgfm of torque didn’t leave much to be missed.
Although it delivers enough power and torque to drive with the family on a daily basis, or even work (for the van versions), the powertrain always drank too much. Inmetro announces that the Fiat Doblo It can achieve 6.4 km/l in the city and 7.2 km/l on the highway with ethanol, in addition to 9.2 km/l in the city and 10.3 km/l on the highway.
10 – Renault Duster Dynamique 2.0 2020
Another Renault in the area, but this one is a little newer and with engine that has now been discontinued. The 2.0 with 148 hp and 20.9 kgfm of torque of the Duster It was a good option, especially with a six-speed manual transmission for those looking for more performance.
It’s a shame that not even the “extra” gear was able to control the SUV’s consumption, which only achieves 6.7 km/l in the city and 7.6 km/l on the highway with ethanol. Gasoline consumption is a little better: 8.9 km/l in the city and 11 km/l on the highway.
