Mazda 2 consumption after 100 km/h

Hello Im considering to get a used mazda 2 2012 1.5l model 1300cc (not skyactive). I know this car is great for city race but im wondering how its performing on highway roads when you hit more than 100 km/h speed, because i might need this car for a few 100km + trips/week.

So what is the consumption of this car if you drive it in highway with more than 100km/h speed?
And what is the optimal speed for driving this car in order to have the best fuel consumption?
Is this car a good choice for long 100km and more trips?

thanks

We only have the 1.5L in the United States, so this info is for the 1.5L, your numbers will be slightly different:


the average highway fuel economy for most people is about 35mpg(6.72 L/100km )

From my own testing i usually never get less than 40mpg(5.88 L/100km) on the highway up to 120km/h, but at 100km/h I usually get at least 45mpg(5.23 L/100km )
My best trip ever was a 35 mile drive to work at 5am, and i achieved 54mpg( 4.36 L/100km )

The optimal highway speed for fuel economy is generally the speed limit, or around 100km/h

As far as being a good choice that is purely subjective, the car isn't made to be fancy or luxurious, it's a driver's car. That being said I've never had any comfort problems
but it will depend on what you are coming from. If you are used to a Cadillac with heated seats and dual zone automatic climate control with acoustic lined window glass,
and 150 pounds of sound deadening the mazda2 might not measure up.

I (being in the middle of the United States) get 35 MPG in town. But, the toll roads here are about 130 km/h and my mileage there drops to about 28 MPG (8.4 L/100km).

Thanks for the replies guys. So based on your words if you keep it under 100km/h speed it usually has the best consumption but above that speed it consumes like a regular petrol car.
