Already annoying for several months, the rise in fuel prices is even becoming problematic as the summer holidays approach. While the first departures take place this weekend, we have calculated the price of your travels for you. For this simulation, which does not claim to be representative of all your “car” expenses for the summer, we have gathered the consumption on the highway for the best-selling models in France. For each category – versatile city cars, small SUVs, compact SUVs or 7-seater SUVs – we have thus gathered the figures for several models to establish a fairly representative selection.. Especially when we made sure to do the calculations with petrol and diesel versions, or even hybrids.
Our calculation method
Remember that we are based on the “right” consumption on the motorway, achieved at our Montlhéry base thanks to our independent flow meter. In addition, we have simulated four routes, all of which connect Paris with the different coasts of France. More than “standard” travel, the aim is first and foremost to simulate the distances that the French most often travel during the summer period, namely between 200 and 1,000 km between homes before arriving at the site.. Although they all start from the capital, these routes therefore provide a good overview of the other diagonals that you could take behind the wheel of your car, and a small difference is simply created in relation to the price of the motorways driven. Some of you who just avoid paying axes to save money, we have voluntarily separated the amounts that you have to add, if you wish.
To simplify the reading of our many calculations, we only give here the price of fuel for “one-way” to the holiday destination, as well as the tolls that the Mappy page separates. The price of fuel will be stopped on 5 July with an average on French territory of 2.02 € / liter for SP95-E10 and 2.05 € / liter for Diesel..
Distances and tolls for each trip
- Paris – Nice: 935 km, 80 € toll
- Paris – Bordeaux: 586 km, 57 € toll
- Paris – Vannes: 465 km, € 29 toll
- Paris – Le Havre: 205 km, € 12 toll
Fuel costs for trips in multi-purpose city cars
For this category we have chosen the Citroën C3 and Renault Clio. If Chevron’s city car is mainly sold in petrol, the Clio is still successful in diesel. But in all circumstances, you choose intermediate powers, exactly the ones we have chosen for the calculations.

Fuel costs for city trips with SUV
Although their favorite terrain is not the highway, many of you go on vacation at the wheel of small SUVs. It’s all the more logical that our Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur show astonishing versatility, and that their trunk is already swallowing a sensible family’s small suitcases on its package. Here we have again chosen all fuels, including the hybrid variant of the Renault urban SUV.

Fuel costs for compact SUV rides
They will undoubtedly be the most represented on the motorways of France between July and August. And with good reason, compact SUVs are the format that French drivers prefer. For the well-known Peugeot 3008 and Citroën C5 Aircross petrol or diesel, we have added a simulation with a hybrid Hyundai Tucson. Difficult, for the first two, to simulate the cost of plug-in hybrid versions, all depending on the level of battery charging. It is certainly not on the highway that the autonomy is highest, but the calculations are still a bit distorted compared to the others. Similarly, Tucson’s highway fuel consumption is high – not surprisingly for a non-rechargeable hybrid – travel costs have increased significantly, but it is to be forgotten that when there, the Korean SUV also knows how to stay sober and compensate for the extra costs observed under the highway “link”.
