These days you don't have to make a tough decision between fun and fuel economy when choosing a new car. Here's our pick of cars which offer both!
Nov 08, 2016
This is one of the peak times of the year to snap up a great deal on a new or used car, so why not treat yourself to a new ride that is both fuel efficient and fun? Vehicle technology is developing at a rapid pace, so there are many car models out there which offer the best of both worlds.
Here we have compiled our pick of the best fuel efficient and fun cars on the market today from some of the UK's most popular car manufacturers; Ford, Nissan, Mazda and Kia. All can be found at one of Sandicliffe’s many dealer branches across the East Midlands.
You can't get much more guilt-free fun on the road than driving the Ford Fiesta ST. Its powerful 80bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged engine produces up to 47.9mpg when going steady in high gear, but this figure decreases the harder you drive. However the Fiesta ST is still top of its class for fuel economy and excitement.
With prices starting from £16,450, the ST is cost effective even as a company car. It has a superior chassis, stiffer suspension and faster steering than the standard Fiesta model. Sharp cornering powered by the turbo engine is handled with ease by a refined torque vectoring system, keeping you stable and in-control of the action.
The thrill-factor is ramped up further by the raspy engine noise and precise six-speed manual gearbox. Bonus points are added thanks to its impressive 138g/km of CO2 emissions - which is no mean feat considering the package you are getting!
The next generation model of the world's best-selling two-seater sports car has all the ingredients for a thrilling driving experience. You might think, why change an icon? But once you sit behind the wheel 160ps engine, you will quickly find that Mazda have lifted the all-new MX-5 to new heights.
The SKYACTIV-Body and KODO design has made the all-new Mazda MX-5's power to weight ration more fine-tuned than ever. Combined with a low centre of gravity, this makes the driving experience dynamic with lightening-fast handling.
For such a powerful sports car, the all-new Mazda MX-5 manages excellent fuel economy with help from its SKYACTIV-G engine. The 1.5 litre 131ps engine returns up to 47.1mpg with just 139g/km of CO2. This is an impressive figure seeing as it can also achieve 7,000rpm and 150Nm of torque. The 2015 Mazda MX-5 is living proof that fun and fuel efficiency can work side-by-side in even the greatest of sports cars!
If fuel efficiency is high on your agenda when buying a new daily car but you also want a SUV that has great styling, the Nissan X-Trail is a good choice! There are plenty of models to choose from: Visia, Acenta, Acenta +, Acenta Smart Vision, N-Vision, N-Tec and the Tekna.
The Nissan X-Trail's fun factor is mainly in the exterior styling. It's a compact SUV cross-over with sharp, quirky looks that appeal to fashion-led buyers. However the 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol engine also lends an energetic and responsive feel for city and motorway driving. The X-Trail can also reach 0-62mph in just 9-7 seconds with an incredibly low 45.6mpg! Incredibly low for a SUV!
A handsome and well-built hatchback, the Rio provides plenty of features at a very competitive price! With the option of a sporty three-door model or a five door model and Kia's award-winning seven year warranty, there are plenty of benefits to this fuel efficient city car! The 1.1 litre diesel 5 door is just £9,995 emitting only 86g/km of CO2 and a fuel efficiency of 85.6mpg. The low CO2 emissions also exempts you from paying road tax! Not only is the Kia Rio a great looking hatchback that will save you money it does so at a budget price.
Yes, we are rounding up the list with another Ford, but the all-new Ford KA+ is one of the cheapest low emission vehicles you can buy - and of course it doesn't compromise on fun. The Ford KA+ will cost you around £9,000 new, making it an affordable alternative to the Ford Fiesta. Although it's huge selling point is its fuel economy figures; 114g/km CO2 and 56.5mpg.
