Not surprised much. A downsized turbo is only going to be as economical as its acceleration profile. If the "standard consumer behavior" includes hitting the boost more often, it's going to drink more gas than normal.

What I'd like to see is how it drinks in traffic, where a downsized variable compression engine should have an advantage over regular ones... or if the heat issues inherent in turbocharged installations make that a no-starter, as well.

I have driven the 1.3 L multijet punto and the 1.9 multijet doblo. The engines are fairly good. I was pleased with the performance and the fuel consumption of both cars (3.5l and 5.5l respectively in city traffic). I did try to avoid rush hour but my city has 18M other people so there is always traffic.

The petrol and CNG TwinAirs are nothing spectacular in real world driving, returning far worse FE than advertised
