The Alfa Romeo boss, Harald Wester, accused in a recent interview that Audi’s data emissions related to its models are fake.
Asked which is the reason the Alfa Romeo Giulietta fails in what concerns the emissions while the Audi A3 1.6 TDI doesn’t (99 grams CO 2 / km), Wester said: “these figures are miraculous, magical and alien. We must be more serious about these long-term numbers,” concluded Harald Wester, who was named as president of Alfa Romeo at the beginning of this year.
According to technical data provided by Alfa Romeo, the most organic version of Giulietta is equipped with a1.6 JTDM engine of 105 hp with Start & Stop, which consumes 4.4 litres/100 km in mixed mode environment and emits 114 grams CO 2 / km.
For the Audi A3 1.6 engine of 105 HP with Start & Stop, the data provided by the German manufacturer shows an 3.16 liters in a medium mixed consumption, the emissions being of 99 grams CO2/km.
