15 most fuel-efficient cars

Characteristics in the rating

Now there is a General trend of striving for economy and careful use of resources. Against this background, many car manufacturers are improving engines and transmissions, creating hybrids, and so on. Our rating is dedicated to such vehicles – the most economical. For the convenience of the reader, the review was divided into several popular categories, and the position of a particular model is based on information from the manufacturer, service centers and owners who own data verified by their own experience.

The most economical small class cars

Small dimensions, light weight and high efficiency make cars of this class the most preferred means of transportation on busy city highways. This category contains the most economical models that can be purchased in the primary market of Russia.

4 Renault Logan

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 8.5;
  • country cycle – 5.6;
  • combined cycle is 7.0.

Renault Logan was deservedly included in the top of our rating. This car, having appeared on the Russian market, immediately gained popularity among consumers for its availability, reliability of units and build quality. In addition, even if not the most, but still economical gasoline engine (especially compared to domestic cars) has become one of the reasons for such a loyal attitude. Logan has an inexpensive, but rather spacious and roomy interior, which allows you to use this passenger transport not only for transporting passengers, but also for solving a huge range of everyday tasks of a domestic or commercial nature.

3 Ford Fiesta 1.6 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • urban cycle: 8.4;
  • country cycle – 4.5;
  • mixed cycle of 5.9.

The petrol engine (105 HP) of this passenger car is not only reliable (like all other engines of this company), but also economical enough to become a worthy representative of its brand in the top of our rating. Compact and maneuverable, this car is able to accelerate to hundreds in just 11.4 seconds. The updated model has become more comfortable and high-tech, and changes in the appearance have given it completely new features. The presence of intelligent and passive safety systems, comfortable and surprisingly spacious interior.

This summary table clearly demonstrates the fuel consumption parameters of passenger cars that took part in our rating. The figures are obtained from open sources, and in no case are they a standard (many measurements were not carried out in laboratory conditions, using fuel from different suppliers)

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 7.5;
  • country cycle – 5,7;
  • combined cycle is 6.6.

A typical representative of middle-class cars, a four-door sedan with a two-liter TDI engine, offers motorists good fuel consumption indicators, (quite standard) 140 horsepower and under 250 Nm of torque. Despite the rather high price in the class, it is in stable demand in the Russian market, but it cannot be called the best-selling one. The high cost of maintenance affects, and gasoline “Koreans” are slowly but surely winning back market share.

1 Peugeot 208 1.0 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 5.1;
  • country cycle-3.3;
  • mixed cycle – 4.3.

A small elegant car with a three-cylinder gasoline engine “eats” very little fuel, which can not but please the owners. A great car for maneuvering in a traffic-congested city – it is easier to Park on it, and it will pass in fairly narrow places. The car has a “fresh”, youthful look and a sufficient level of comfort of the interior space. The presence of high-level active auxiliary and passive safety systems allowed Euro NCAP to award the Peugeot 208 all 5 stars, which is very cool for a small and economical car.

The most fuel-efficient mid-range cars

Cars of this category have a sufficient level of comfort and are in the greatest demand on the market. Modern power plants allow these models to be as economical as representatives of the small class.

4 Hyundai Solaris 1.6 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle of 8.0;
  • extra-urban cycle and 4.8;
  • combined cycle is 6.0.

The most optimal model in terms of overall configuration. According to manufacturers, the new Hyundai Solaris with a six-speed manual transmission and a 1.6-liter engine spends about six liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers. For comparison, the same model with the 1.4 engine has a fuel consumption of 5.7 liters under the same conditions. Add to this indicator the overall popularity of both the company and the model itself, add to this splendor a relatively low price in the class – and we have a future sales leader in Russia.

3 Skoda Octavia 1.4 l TSI DSG

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 6.4;
  • country cycle – 4.7;
  • mixed cycle – of 5.3.

It just so happens that the most economical model of the new Skoda has a seven-speed robotic gearbox and a turbocharged gasoline engine. In this configuration, the 1.4-liter engine produces up to 150 horsepower, and fuel consumption per hundred in the combined cycle does not exceed 5.3 liters. The cost of such a” miracle ” at dealers is more than a million. With moderate driving, the car will become a good vehicle for the city, but it is not recommended to “hurricane” on it – how much the seven-speed robot will last in this case, we can only guess.

2 Kia Rio 1.6 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 7.0;
  • extra-urban cycle and 4.8;
  • a mixed cycle of 5.9.

A complete clone of the Hyundai Solaris in terms of engine performance and average price level, which, however, shows slightly better gasoline consumption results. Even if the difference between them is not so significant (only 0.1 liters per hundred kilometers) and does not give much benefit even in the long run, but dry statistics require honest display. Both models have a lot of fans in Russia, so talking about the dominance of one over the other in a single component, and not in General, is a rather stupid idea.

1 Volkswagen Passat 1.4 TSI

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 6.1;
  • country cycle – 4.4;
  • mixed cycle – 5.1

The most economical car category is very popular in Russia and deservedly leads in the top of this category. The model with a gasoline engine is characterized by unpretentiousness in operation and inexpensive maintenance costs, offering its owner the maximum possible comfort and safety for the money spent. A car with a conservative design and high build quality is a good alternative to many more prestigious models.

The most economical luxury cars

The main difference between luxury cars and the middle segment is in visual qualities and comfort parameters. Not always representatives of this class are equipped with more powerful engines, which, in other respects, they do not need. The main goal of such cars is to look solid and instill in others a sense of envy or genuine interest in the person inside the salon.

4 BMW 520D

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 7.4;
  • country cycle – 5.5;
  • combined cycle – 6.2.

Unexpected, at first glance, the appearance of the BMW 5 series in our rating is more than justified by such indicators. With a weight of 2200 kg, and a rather frisky “temper” inherent in this model of an elite car, its fuel consumption is only slightly higher than that of small cars. At the same time, we have an elite class sedan in the seventh generation, with a spacious and comfortable interior. There is no need to describe all the advantages – this passenger car has plenty of them. And, despite the fact that 190 HP is hidden under the hood, the BMW 520D can be considered an economical car, worthy of entering the top of our rating.

3 Mercedes A-class 1.5 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 5.7;
  • country cycle – 3.1;
  • mixed cycle – 3.9.

Someone may consider this car a “diesel misunderstanding” that fell on the head of the chief engineer of the Mercedes-Benz concern. But we do know that the lion’s share of the money paid for the right to own a car is spent on excellent quality and corporate design. In principle, 90 horses and 240 Nm of torque are enough to drive around the city in farce mode, but you should not expect much from them. But the consumption is pleasing: when driving in a mixed cycle, it is only 3.9 liters per”hundred”. Decent numbers for a decent Executive car.

2 Mazda 6 2.0 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle of 8.0;
  • extra-urban cycle and 5.3;
  • mixed cycle – 6.5.

Eco-friendly, dynamic, stylish – this is only a small part of the epithets that the Mazda 6 deserves. a full-Fledged Executive car with a bold sporty character spends as much in the mixed cycle as the leader of this category, provided that there is a two-liter engine with a capacity of 150 horsepower under the hood, and the transmission is switched by automatic transmission. The cost of the model for the current realities is optimal, especially for a car of this class.

1 Audi A6 2.0 TFSI

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 8,3;
  • country cycle – 5.4;
  • mixed cycle – 6.5.

Audi’s Executive sedan is deservedly among the top three most fuel-efficient cars. The impressive 180 horsepower produced by a turbocharged two-liter engine, coupled with a manual transmission in a mixed cycle, consumes only 6.5 liters of gasoline. Yes, such a car can cost a lot of money to maintain, but if money is not a problem for You – this is the option that you should pay attention to.

The most fuel-efficient hybrid cars

Cars of this category, in addition to modern internal combustion engines, have electric motors that allow you to reduce fuel consumption as much as possible and significantly reduce environmental pollution. In addition, hybrids are more dynamic due to the possibility of simultaneously using the torque of two power plants.

3 PORSCHE PANAMERA 4 E-HYBRID

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 2.5;
  • country cycle – 2.5;
  • mixed cycle – 2.5

These flow readings were recorded in conditions close to ideal, and in real life they are, of course, larger. The main thing is that the battery is charged. With all-wheel drive and a 462-HP petrol engine, the PANAMERA 4 E-HYBRID truly surprises with something completely different. The fast start mode, which uses both power plants, is able to accelerate the car to hundreds in just 4.6 seconds! The electric component of the hybrid weighed down the car by 320 kg, and the Luggage compartment had to be reduced by 95 liters to hide the electric battery. In addition to the high level of comfort and safety, as an additional option, the owner can appreciate the advantages of driving with a rear rotary axle.

2 Audi A6 3.0 55 TFSI quattro S tronic

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 9.1;
  • country cycle – 5.5;
  • combined cycle – 6.8.

This is an excellent indicator for a car with a gross weight of 2.4 tons. Fuel economy is not the only advantage of the Audi A6 3.0 hybrid. A distinctive feature of this car can be considered a completely silent and rapid start. This monster is able to “pass” over a hundred in just 5.1 seconds! The combination of a gasoline engine with a turbine and an electric motor (Boost mode) during high-speed maneuvering can amaze the most experienced drivers. The AUDI model range has always been distinguished by high-quality electronics and security systems, and the hybrid is no exception. And the level of comfort is not even worth talking about – for this brand of car, the convenience and safety of the driver and passengers have always been and remain one of the traditional components.

1 Toyota Prius 1.8 l

15 most fuel-efficient cars

Estimated fuel consumption (l / 100 km)):

  • city cycle – 3.1;
  • country cycle – 2.9;
  • mixed cycle – 3.0.

A legendary car from a Japanese carmaker that changed the world with its appearance. Skipping a brief history lesson, the Prius is the first hybrid car in the world. Until a certain point, the impossible combination of a 1.8-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor generator gave people an expensive, unusual and wonderfully economical hatchback. When driving in mixed road conditions, it consumes only three liters of gasoline. Of course, over time, competitors have begun to creep into a previously unknown niche, but the Prius still holds its position well.
