For those living in urban settings, one of the things to consider is having a car that drives efficiently through the tight city streets. Even when governments invest in car markets, they usually have a specific focus. Some cars will score higher than others in terms of efficiency, and in this list, we bring the ones that have the highest score.
#1. Toyota Yaris 1.5 Hybrid
If fuel economy appeals to you in a car, the Toyota Yaris is where you should start looking. It is a comfortable car that offers a variety of top-notch equipment for the urban driver. It deservedly won the Car of the Year in the What a Car? Awards last year, beating the likes of Vauxhall Corsa and Ford Fiesta.
#2. Toyota Prius 1.9 VVTi
The Prius defines hybrid motoring at its best, therefore, seeing it at number two on the list comes as no surprise. For the urban driver, Toyota Prius allows you to utilize the limited electric-only range, and at the same time, you’ll get no better car in terms of fuel economy when you hit the motorway.
#3. Toyota RAV4 2.5
There have been changes in the previous model of RAV4, but it still offers one of the most efficient urban driving. Its petrol-electric set-up allows the driver to switch between electric power and petrol smoothly, and you will find adequate room for passengers and luggage.
#4. Suzuki Ignis 1.2 SHVS
The Suzuki Ignis is one of the most impressive SUVs around, despite being a small car. It comes in deceptively immense features for urban driving, but you may like it because it is cheap to buy and drive.
#5. Renault Kadjar 1.5 dCi 110
Renault is known to focus on equipment and space for modern SUVs, and this model offers more. It is cheap to purchase, and is cost-effective to drive too, thanks to the focused fuel usage from its 1.5-litre engine.
#6. Kia Niro Hybrid
This hybrid car is an upgrade of the Kia e-Niro which was entirely electric. Kia Niro comes in handy when you need to switch between electric and petrol, as the engine and motor are designed to switch seamlessly. Take advantage of Kia’s 7-year warranty.
#7. Volkswagen Up 1.0 75
The main focus on the Up is luxury on the move. Car experts found that this car is fundamentally a similar car to Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii, but it offers more in terms of comfort while driving on the urban roads. Its range of 3-cylinder petrol engines offer an economical alternative.
#8. Ford Mondeo 1.5 TDCi
If you’re looking fior a spacious car with a remarkable rating in terms of agility and comfortability, the Mondeo fits the bill. It is yet to be accorded the premium badge, so it is time to take advantage of some crazy discounts.
#9. Seat Ateca 1.6 TDI 115
It is the first SUV from Seat, but it is the ideal family car due to its spacious interior. It is agile to handle, and is reasonably priced.
#10. Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi 110
It is one of the best-selling family cars in the UK for a reason. The range of efficiency-focused engines on offer is something to think about.
