The diesels? 61.4mpg/124 g/km from both the 75bhp and 90bhp 1.3 CDTis, and 58.8mpg/130 g/km from the 1.7 CDTi.

Its passengers still sit high and upright, but the roofline has been dynamically lowered and blends into a smooth arc toward the rear. This helps create the Agila's aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.32 - a relatively low figure for a vehicle of this size.

You do realize that the numbers in your post are ImpMPG and not USMPG. Just because YOU put "US" after the number, doesn't make it so.
1 ImpMPG = .8326 USMPG

Some of the cars in Europe get quite high mileage in any case. When I make the conversion, I go from liters (or, litres) directly to US gallons, as litres are the normal way to buy fuel in Europe now.
Diesel is, at least in some countries of Europe, cheaper than gasoline by some 10%, contrary to what we see here in the USA, and it is a high quality clean diesel.

Varies a bit. In Norway, they typically use an efficiency ratio which is litres of fuel per 10 kilometers driven. Easily converted to miles per gallon if one wishes to do so.
The Brits, IIUC, buy petrol by the litre, but many still think in terms of the Imperial gallon.
