Fuel economy is a huge factor when it comes to choosing your next car, but too often the manufactures' figures aren't reflected in what you actually get in real life. As a result, the cars on this list win their place based on real MPG figures submitted by their owners.
Peugeot 208 1.6 BlueHDi
This amazing compact car not only has a stylish look to it, with the interior having a soft-touch materials and a minimalist dashboard design. This stunning car has made it on to this list because the 1.6-litre diesel engine will also see 67.4mpg for those who cover a lot of motorway miles.
Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI 115 DSG
The Skoda Octavia isn’t the most luxurious option, but it offers a composed drive and a sensible, decidedly upmarket interior. As can be expected, the most efficient engine is a diesel option - the 1.6 TDI, which produces 105PS and gives drivers a return of around 63mpg.
Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi 85
The Ford Fiesta is the UK’s most popular car and this is due to the huge choice if trims, engines and specs which allows the driver to fully match their needs. Models that contain a diesel engine (the 1.5 TDCI) will get you just over 63mpg.
Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC
The Honda Civic in this list is the 2012-2017 model, rather than the newest Honda Civic that was launched in 2017. Even though this is the older model, it still has a reliable and stable mpg score, with it seeing just over 65mpg.
