A Lesson In Car Economics From Tiger.co.uk
Small cars are the perfect vehicles for starting out in the world of motoring and are a good choice for newly qualified drivers. But with so many new models available on the market, selecting the right one can be challenging. Tiger.co.uk has produced a guide to selecting the most economical model.
City cars and superminis, as they have been named by manufacturers, are generally very good cars and for newly qualified and young drivers they also come with very low running costs. But with so many models to choose from it can be difficult to select the right one.
Using data from a combination of sources, including What Car?, Tiger.co.uk has looked at ten of the most popular small cars available on the market in the UK to see which delivers the most economical drive based on the overall combination of emissions, cost of insurance, tax band, fuel economy and, of course, how much the car itself will set you back. Top of the table is the Citroen C1:
|RANK||MAKE AND MODEL*||INSURANCE GROUP||TAX BAND||MPG||PRICE||EMISSIONS|
Andrew Goulborn, Commercial Director of Tiger.co.uk, commented: “With news this year that petrol prices could have been rigged for a decade and younger drivers paying very high insurance premiums, motorists are swapping their petrol guzzling cars for smaller, more economical models. With cheaper running costs being a high priority amongst motorists, more economical and affordable small cars are being introduced to the market. We have released this study with that in mind to help those seeking out a vehicle with low running costs.”
