Introduction

The 2017 Fuel Consumption Guide provides model-specific fuel consumption information about 2017 model year light-duty vehicles. The information can be used to compare the fuel consumption of different models and help you to select the most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets your everyday needs. Fuel use is an ongoing expense and should be considered when purchasing or leasing a vehicle. Choosing the most fuel-efficient and appropriate size of vehicle, driving in a fuel-efficient manner, using your vehicle only when needed and following the manufacturer’s operation and maintenance recommendations for your vehicle can save you fuel and money year after year – even more if fuel prices rise.

The choices you make about the vehicle you buy and how you drive it also have a significant impact on the environment and our health. Greenhouse gases (GHGs), predominantly carbon dioxide (CO2), are produced when fuel is burned in your vehicle’s engine. CO2 emissions are directly proportional to the amount of fuel consumed – for every litre of gasoline used, about 2.3 kilograms (kg) of CO2 are generated. Although not directly harmful to our health, CO2 emissions contribute to climate change.

This guide is produced by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) in cooperation with vehicle manufacturers. The Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) at NRCan thanks the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association and Global Automakers of Canada for their assistance in the production of the 2017 Fuel Consumption Guide. Special thanks are extended to Environment and Climate Change Canada for collecting the fuel consumption data provided by vehicle manufacturers.

The annual Fuel Consumption Guide is one of a variety of decision-making tools available from the OEE that make the relative energy efficiency and energy performance of different products more visible to Canadian consumers.

A message from vehicle manufacturers

The 2017 Fuel Consumption Guide and the EnerGuide fuel consumption label included with all new light-duty vehicles are produced in cooperation with vehicle manufacturers and NRCan.

Purchasing a new vehicle is a major decision involving many factors. The information in this guide will assist you in comparing relative fuel consumption ratings among vehicles that meet your utility, performance and lifestyle needs. A range of advanced, fuel-efficient technologies is available across the fleet of new vehicles.

While the fuel consumption ratings of a vehicle are one purchase consideration, how you operate and maintain your vehicle also affects the amount of fuel consumed. To optimize fuel efficiency, your vehicle must be properly maintained and run on clean, high-quality fuels. To reduce the amount of fuel you use, always follow the recommendations for fuel formulation and for vehicle maintenance and operation provided in your owner’s manual.

Together we can reduce the amount of fuel used for personal transportation and the resulting GHGs.
