1.01m
Ford Flex SE (2014): 1.03m

18. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
15.7l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km
