With fuel prices rising, manufacturers are continually striving to drive down costs and meet ever-more stringent emissions laws by producing cleaner, more efficient cars.
Here, we’ve collated a list of the top 10 most economical cars on sale in the UK. We’ve left out the all-electric Nissan Leaf, range-extending Vauxhall Ampera and popular Toyota Prius, choosing to focus on those with a conventional combustion engine, many of which boast hybrid-rivalling economy.
Unsurprisingly our list is made up entirely of diesels. Their superior efficiency is unavoidable, with every one of our 10 boasting economy of more than 80mpg.
So, if you’re in the market for some tax-busting transport, be sure to browse our choices below.
