It is an obvious fact that the cost of fuel is increasing at the pump putting a strain on motorists in addition to other car associated costs. If you are thinking of a new car for yourself, one of the criteria you should consider is fuel-efficiency.
Car manufacturers are more aware of the environment and are designing cars that are kinder to the environment with low CO2 emissions and more efficient to run.
So what are some of the fuel efficient cars on our roads today? These are some of BAO Chauffeurs’ choices:
Smart Fortwo cdi
Ok, for some of us this might look weird but it is the most economical car in Britain. This two-seater car might not be the fastest for the speed enthusiasts but you can be sure it will get you from A to B at the cheapest rate with a fuel consumption of 86g/km.
Toyota Auris Hybrid
This British built petrol-electric car can save you a few bucks. More economical than its Prius counterpart, though doesn’t offer as smooth a drive. It is a good buy if you are trying to cut down on your transportation budget. Consumes 89g/km of fuel.
Skoda Fabia Greenline
Cool 5 Seater Fabia can conveniently seat an average family. With a 89g/km consumption rate, it is probably one of the best environment-friendly cars on sale.
Volkwagen Polo Blue Motion
For those who love a well known brand, this Polo is right up your street. This 1.2 TDI diesel engine might guzzle a bit more fuel than your average Smart car but you are guaranteed a good drive. 91g/km can still save you a few pounds at the end of the month.
SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive
This is also another good buy with a 92g/km fuel usage - just a little more than the Polo. This might be a good option if lower price is more important than looks to you.
Lexus CT 200h
Now some of us just love a bit of luxury but in this climate how do we balance the cost of a good car and the running cost. You may find your answer in a Lexus 200h - thanks to Kylie for making it even more desirable. A premium well equipped car that manages to control its fuel consumption at 94g/km – a joy for lovers of luxury.
Fiat 500 0.9 TwinAir
Have you spotted some these cars zipping in and out of the city? It’s a good run on the road with a two-cylinder turbocharged TwinAir petrol engine. Still fuel efficient at 95g/km and also gives you an equally comfortable drive due to its cutting edge design.
There are a few other cars out there that can offer you a good return on your investment without breaking the bank. Fuel efficiency is worth considering if you want a car that won’t cost the earth to run – money and environment-wise. Before you buy, carry out adequate research and do not go by looks alone...remember looks can be deceptive.
