EPA Makes BMW Correct MINI Fuel-Economy Figures


Hyundai and Ford aren’t the only manufacturers that have been forced to revise their fuel-economy scores. Now BMW is joining this hall of shame.

The German luxury brand is adjusting the consumption figures of four different MINI models to make them more accurate. The EPA performed a fuel-economy audit on these cars and determined that their results differed from the ones posted by BMW.

The four models in question are the Cooper three-door with both manual and automatic transmissions as well as the Cooper S three-door, again with manual and self-shifting gearboxes. Affected cars are from the 2014 model year. Combined fuel economy ratings will be dropping by one mile per gallon for each of these variations, though both city and highway figures will differ as well.
