Lifting is quite useful, especially in times of expensive fuel, as is the case these days.

Inmetro (National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology) released fuel consumption data for vehicles sold in 2022. The Brazilian Vehicle Labeling Program brings the averages of 671 models or versions of passenger and light commercial cars available today market, produced by 33 different automakers.

The list includes releases such as the Peugeot 208
, with a 1.0 aspirated engine, as well as vehicles already sold last year. However, all have already had to receive changes to meet the new emission limits imposed by the Proconve L7
(the new phase of the Air Pollution Control Program by Motor Vehicles).

The ranking considers the flex cars
with lower consumption in MJ/km in Brazil and disregards hybrid or electric vehicles
. The list brings the most affordable version of each model, when there is more than one available with the same consumption. The wording of iG Cars eliminated repetitions in the table (example of Onix Hatch with Onix Plus and of both City bodies).

The PBE measures the energy consumption
in MJ/km (megajoules per kilometer) and also in km/l of the models sold here. That is, it evaluates the necessary energy expenditure for a particular car to move around. The lower the cost per km driven, the more efficient a particular car will be. All receive grade B (in the range from A to E).
