Caterham Seven 160 achieves ultra-frugal performance figures

As Caterham Cars prepares to kick off production of the Seven 160, the British sportscar maker has announced ultra-frugal performance figures for the entry-level version of the Seven.
The newest model to join the Seven range is powered by a super-compact, turbocharged three-cylinder Suzuki engine, which enables it to achieve 4.9 liters/100km (57.6mpg) and emit 114g/km CO2; making it the most economical Seven yet. Producing 81ps from its 660cc engine and generating a top speed of 160km/h, the 160 will reach 100km/h in 6.5 seconds.
Caterham Cars’ chief commercial officer, David Ridley, said: “To achieve our performance criteria, our engineers carried out significant development work to fine-tune the Suzuki engine from its standard output of 64ps to 81ps and ensure the engine, suspension and overall dynamics all worked in harmony, whilst boosting fuel economy and reducing emissions.”
