It uses 6.9;/100km of fuel or 7.5l/100km for the automatic and emits 167g/km of CO2 (175g/km of CO2. Figures for the Paceman are almost identical. 

ALL4 uses an electronically controlled electromagnetic center differential that distributes power continuously between the front and rear. The system is integrated with the stability control system to send power where it is needed most.
