Lamborghini Huracán Evo review – MPG and running costs

No Lamborghini is ever going to excel in this area, but keep your foot light and it’ll do some reasonable numbers

Evo rating

So the drawback of such a large and old-fashioned engine, one would think, would be high fuel consumption and running costs, and in this case, you’d be right. No Huracán is an efficient car, and forget about hitting the near-30mpg cruising figures that McLarens are often capable of.

Breaking into the 20s in all Huracáns is usually a sign you’re driving too slowly, with 16-18mpg more likely in normal driving circumstances.

Other running costs are likely to be, well, Italian supercar high, although the 5.2-litre engine has proven to be a relatively reliable unit over the years. Consumables are likely to be the hardest hitters though, with a low tread wear rating on the standard Pirelli rubber and costly insurance premiums.
