5 Most Economical Cars in 2018
Economy is a huge factor when it comes to choosing a car; particularly in a day and age where the public is becoming increasingly eco-conscious. In addition to being better for the environment, an economical car can also help you make huge savings in terms of petrol and road tax, so it is easy to see why this is such an important aspect when it comes to choosing a car.
Here are a few of the more economical cars that you can purchase in 2018.
The most economical non-hybrid (and more economical than many hybrids), the 208 from Peugeot is a superb car that is capable of an impressive 94.2 mpg and 79g/km of CO2. In addition to its terrific economy, the 208 is stylish, practical, and fun to drive.
It is hardly surprising that the “poster car” for green driving is one of the most economical cars available. The world’s first mass-produced hybrid is capable of a claimed 94.1 mpg whilst emitting just 70g/km. In addition to incredibly low running costs, the Prius is proving popular as it is very easy to live with, it is very quiet on the road, and it provides a relaxed motoring experience. Although expensive to buy, you could always consider a loan for your Prius for a more affordable way to get behind the wheel.
A U.K. favorite, the newest Ford Fiesta is also one of the most economical cars to buy in 2018 with impressive returns of 88.3 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 82g/km — less than some hybrids. The supermini is also a class leader due to the fact that it provides excellent driving performance along with a cool style and surprising amount of space.
The new Micra is a huge step up from its predecessor in terms of both looks and performance. It features a sleek new style both inside and out and the 1.5 dCi diesel (the pick of the bunch) now boasts impressive returns of 88.3 mpg and low CO2 figures to keep running costs very low.
The 1.5-liter diesel model is one of the cheapest cars to run with returns of 88.3 mpg, but all of the models in the Clio range offer impressive returns so you should find one that suits your needs. The looks have also been revamped with more color schemes, hidden rear handles, decals, trim options, and more.
These are 5 of the most economical cars available, all of which are cheap to run whilst still providing an excellent experience behind the wheel.
