Ok, you’re right, this article doesn’t apply to the US market, but I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the top 5 most fuel efficient cars in Europe. For us, living in the United States, gas price has never been a problem, until recently when the oil market has skyrocketed and we started paying more and more for gas.
We have always loved our big and powerful cars and in my case, I have always looked down at the small cars, never presented any interest in them. But things seem to be changing now and more and more people are looking at hybrid cars or in general just cars with a low gas consumption. With this said, let’s see what our European friends are driving and find out what they decided on what the best car is.
1. Fiat Panda 1.3 Multijet Diesel
2. Citroen C2 1.4 HDi Diesel
3. Citroen C1 1.0
4. Toyota Aygo 1.0
5. Peugeot 107 1.0
The tests were conducted on public roads and take into account traffic conditions, weather, types of road and all the other variables that influence your mpg.
The MPG is displayed in US gallons, I did the conversion from imperial to our US gallon, so the results will be accurate. Now here comes my question:
Would you be willing to give up the comfort, size and speed for an economical car? Would these cars be appropriate for our driving conditions?
