The Top 5 Most Fuel Efficient Cars in UK

With the rising cost of motoring on every driver’s radar lately, those currently looking to buy a new or used car may wish to start out by looking at the most economical cars currently available, at the time of writing.

Saving money on things like car insurance is a great way to cut motoring costs down but there’s nothing quite like owning a car that can manage its fuel consumption well and save you a small fortune annually at the same time.

As you will see below, the new Volvo V60 plug-in Hybrid Diesel wins with an incredible 155 miles per gallon on offer, followed by the Toyota Prius Plug-in Petrol Hybrid with 135mpg.

However, motorists are being put in an awkward situation when it comes to outlay. Both cars are priced well over £30,000 each and this has to play a major deciding factor when it comes to performance over economy.
