Most people would agree that searching for a car with low fuel consumption is a top priority these days. Nobody wants to damage the planet beyond repair, and so we must take a fresh look at the markets to work out which models are worthy of our consideration. The cars listed below are not only cheap to purchase, but they are also amazing when it comes to using less petrol. You don’t have to sell your current model right now and go out to get one of these, but we promise you won’t regret it if you do.
Designed as a city car, the Peugeot 107 was released way back in 2005. However, it remained in production right up until 2014, and so there are many of them available on the used market. Auto World and similarly reliable sellers always have this model in stock, and that is because they know how much people love them. Sure, you’re not going to break the sound barrier, but you are going to save a lot of money on fuel. The 1-litre engine is also low on emissions, and that is very important to many motorists today.
French car manufacturer Renault released the Twingo in 1992. It was so popular that they are still producing and selling them today. Buying a small car like the Twingo is one of the best ways to reduce fuel consumption. Again, they come with 1-litre engines that are designed to stand the test of time. Thankfully, the don’t sound like hair dryers, and the ride is pretty comfortable. While the Twingo might look small, there is a shocking amount of space inside. It will never be the perfect model from transporting your kids to school, but it’s fantastic for making your way around tight roads in the city.
Released as the sister car of the Suzuki Alto, the Nissan Pixo is often overlooked by car buyers in this country. However, there are many used versions around, and so you won’t have to look too far if you decide to purchase one this year. Revealed in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show, it became an instant hit with those who place a strong emphasis on looking after the environment. Surprisingly, the Pixo could have been obtained brand new for less than £7000 until 2013. It has now been pulled from UK showrooms, but there are lots of them on the second-hand market.
Still going strong, the Vauxhall Corsa is the most popular model in the country with a 1-litre engine. Many new drivers purchase the Corsa model because it helps to lower their insurance costs. However, the 1-litre engine makes it perfect for people who want to reduce emissions and go green. With an incredibly low fuel consumption, it doesn’t look like the Corsa will go out of production anytime soon.
You should now have a good idea about which models are most suitable for you this summer. We all want to deal with environmental issues, and we all want to save the planet. So, leave those bulky 4X4s on the forecourts and opt for something smaller. At the end of the day, you are leaving this world behind for your children. Make sure you haven’t damaged it too much!
