The NEDC tests have identified indicators, in accordance with the theoretical average values of the conditional driving style. The WLTP tests based on real data collected from around the world. The WLTP driving cycle is divided into four parts with different average speeds: low, medium, high and very high. Each part contains multiple phases of driving, stopping, acceleration and deceleration. And each configuration of the transmission is checked for the most economical and least economical version of the car.

In addition, the WLTP has been designed for use as a global test cycle in different regions of the world. Therefore, emissions of pollutants and CO2 and the fuel consumption will be comparable worldwide.
