With fuel prices rising, it makes sense to turn to models that use less fuel. A brief overview.
You can have it noticedthe price of fuel is in easy fall for a couple of days. nothing significant as the prices remain very student compared to what motorists have experienced in recent years.
Tips exists to reduce its bill. But the best is yet to come to invest in a vehicle that consumes less than the average.
The city car, the first of the categories
There are many super fuel-efficient city cars. Inevitably, even if the average consumption is higher, you must choose one city car which initially accepts superethanol E85 turns out to be a winning bet. According to our measurements made by Auto Plus labthe one that rises to the top of the city car list is the Ford Fiesta 1.0 Flexifuel (95 hp). Thanks to a ridiculous price at the pump compared to current SP95, 98 or diesel prices, drive 1000 km will only cost you €54 fuel.
Another possible alternative, turn to city cars that work for LPG. In this case, two city cars from the Renault group do well. Exactly Dacia Sandero Eco-G (100 hp) and Renault Clio 1.0TCe LPG (100 hp). The price per 1000 km rises here to €71 and €72 respectively.
Hybrid city cars also do well. Among the hybrid city cars that possess a bird-like appetite, they are called the most reasonable Honda Jazz Hybrid (109 hp) or Toyota Yaris Hybrid (116 hp). Both show an average consumption of 4.8l/100km and will ask you €89 if we reduce the cost to 1000 km.
Among city cars that run on fossil fuels, city cars Vauxhall Corsa 1.5, Peugeot 208 1.5 BlueHDi and Renault Clio 1.5 Blue dCi (all in 100 hp) are the most economical in diesel. We are staying below the €105 mark for 1000 km.
Finally, for a gasoline engine, the best students Mitsubishi Space Star (71 hp), Mazda2 1.5 Skyactiv-GM Hybrid (90 hp, light hybridization), and Suzuki Ignis Where Swift 1.2 Dualjet Hybrid (83 hp, light hybridization).
Some sedans use little!
For those who need a more spacious vehicle, here again Ford hits hard. That Ford Focus 1.0 Flexifuel Hybrid (125 hp) is the sedan that ranks right at the top of our ranking. It’s also the only one that accepts E85 among compact sedans. Light and original hybridization compatible with E85, Focus in such a configuration shows a consumption. 8L medium and screens a price per 1000 km for €61.
Behind her is Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid (122 hp) and Toyota Prius Hybrid (122 hp). The Japanese show the simple hybrid a price per 1000 km at €85 versus €79 for the plug-in hybrid version.
As with city cars, compact diesel-powered sedans are well placed. The latter is in the majority on our ranking list. Among the less fuel-intensive areAudi A3 Sportback 30 TDI (116 hp) and its variation 35 TDI S tronic 7 (150 hp) which both consumes 5l on average and requires €93 per 1000 km.
Around French modelsare called the good students in the sequence Citroen C4 1.5 BlueHDi (110 hp), Renault Megane 1.5 Blue dCi EDC (115 hp) and Peugeot 308 1.5 BlueHDi (130 hp). Respectively, we always fall according to our targets from Auto Plus lab, at a price per 1000 km at 97, 101 and 102 €.
The Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI DSG7 (115 and 150 hp) is also a good alternative, with an average consumption of 5.2 l/100 km.

Compact SUVs are not left out
Attention SUV fans! There are also very sober models, contrary to what many might think.
Hats off to Ford, who once again climbed to the top of the list of the least fuel-efficient cars. This is where we must turn Ford Kuga 2.5 FHEV E85 (190 hp), both hybrid and E85. With an average consumption measured by us at 7.9 l/100 km and a price per 1000 km. only €61it is definitely the most fuel-efficient compact SUV on the market.
In another register, the Dacia Duster uses the same recipe as the Sandero by offering an SUV that runs on LPG. So Dacia Duster 1.0 Eco-G (100 hp) compensates for its average consumption of 9.8 l by a price per 1000 km at €84. Which makes it the 2nd most fuel efficient compact SUV. It even performs better than its diesel cousin 1.5 Blue dCi (115 hp) which exceeds the threshold of €100 per 1000 km.
A miracle fuel for your wallet, E85 even whets your appetite Range Rover Evoque P200 Flexfuel (200 hp), which on average consumes no less than 12.2 l/100 km of superethanol. Helped by the bottom price of this fuel, the English SUV took third place in the ranking with €93 per 1000 km !
Finally, it is called the best three-color compact SUV that excludes alternative fuel solutions Peugeot 3008 1.5 BlueHDi EAT8 (130 hp). With a controlled consumption of 5.8 l / 100 km, combined with the intelligent and well-designed EAT8 autobox, the price per 1000 km of the French for €112. It’s better than one Renault Arkana E-Tech Hybrid (145 hp) or a Citroen C5 Aircross 1.5 BlueHDi EAT8 (130 hp).
To know your car’s real emissions, you need to take its consumption in liters per 100 km and multiply it by:
– 23.3 if petrol
– 26.4 if diesel
And you want the emissions in gCO2/km.
Example consumption of 6 litres/100 km in petrol x23.3 = 140 gCO2/km. pic.twitter.com/DKCqrGUkQ5
