With the growth of fuel prices, fuel consumption has become relevant again as one of the most important characteristics of vehicles.
After screen diagonal sizes and assistance systems have taken precedence as the most common topics about cars, current market conditions are dictating some new trends. One of them is certainly fuel consumption, which now has an increasing share in the household budget.
However, there are also cars whose owners do not worry too much about consumption, he writes Index.hr. We do not mean the owners of vehicles with a gas installation, those of more expensive hybrids or even more expensive electric cars, but the owners of some very economical cars.
For example, in the early 1990s such cars were Daihatsu Charade, Suzuki Swift and Citroen AX (after Saxo), which even then consumed less than 5 l / 100 km. And that was a drastic difference in relation to the most common Zastava vehicles, which were twice as thirsty with classic carburetors, no matter how light a foot they had on the gas.
Today, some other cars have taken over that role, and their consumption, despite technological progress, has not dropped significantly. Bigger and heavier, these cars have remained at the level of former savers, which means that they revolve around 5 l / 100 km. So is a British magazine What Car? compiled a list of the 10 most economical cars, and among them there are few with a family function.
In 10th place is the Dacia Sandero 0.9 TCe (90HP) which consumes 4.45 l / 100 km. Favorable price and the possibility of gas installation make this model probably the best choice in times of crisis.
Next comes the Seat Leon 1.0 TSI with 95HP, which has the same consumption, but also a significantly higher price. Leon is followed by city kids, starting with Kia Picanto, VW Up, Škoda Citigo, etc., and they all range from 4.3 to 4.2 l / 100 km. In third place is the Up with an engine of 75HP and 4.21 l / 100 km. And at the very top is a well-known name, Suzuki, among which the Ignis 1.2 is the only one that can consume less than 4 l / 100 km.
If we add diesels to the story, those that are certainly commendable are the Opel Astra 1.6 CDTI with an average of 4.18 l / 100 km, the Seat Leon 1.6 TDI with minimal consumption and the Škoda Superb 2.0 TDI with 150 hp and an average of 4.3 l / 100 km, points out the British. car shop.
We will also include a 1.5 dCi engine from Renault, which can also smoothly run an average below 5 l / 100 km, in probably all models it runs. If we extend the story to hybrids, especially those at a cheaper level, which were created to be economical, it is clear that they are all smart purchases.
