• By the way, recently Seat introduced the new fourth-generation Leon, which now looks more “stylish, fashionable, youthful” with its wheelbase extended by 50 mm, lowered and elongated hood and almost vertical grille. And for the first time he became a full-fledged hybrid (in the eHybrid version), and now he can be recharged from the outlet. In electric mode, a battery charge with a capacity of 13 kWh is enough for 60 kilometers.
• Due to its compactness and efficiency (consumes 4,41 liters per 100 km), this car is an ideal option for the city. Of course, you can’t call it very fast (it accelerates to a hundred in 14,3 seconds), but, despite its size, this baby is quite roomy. It is equipped with a 255-liter trunk, and the rear seats fold in a 60/40 ratio.
7Volkswa Up (Turbo)
• A turbocharged version of this hot hatch with 89 hp. under the hood is one of the most nimble city cars. It features a comfortable interior and a funny but stylish exterior thanks to the original rear optics and interesting bumper design.
• This car eats “like a bird”, 4,38 liters per 100 kilometers. So, if low ground clearance and a low seating position don't bother you, then the Volkswagen Up can be a reliable and low-maintenance travel companion.
6 Seat Ibiza
• This car with 94 hp Under the hood, it pulls enthusiastically at low revs and accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 10 seconds. A decent result for a production car.
• The Seat Ibiza also saves you money by consuming 4,35 liters every 100 km.
5 Suzuki Baleno
• The first, but not the only Suzuki in the top 10 most economical gasoline cars is a direct competitor to the Skoda Fabia and Ford Fiesta, but is more efficient in terms of gasoline consumption than them. This compact car will require 100 liters of fuel per 4,26 km.
• There's just one problem: the Baleno has been discontinued, but you can find pre-owned options at very reasonable prices.
4. Skoda Citigo
• Sufficiently spacious inside the car, which on city streets feels like a fish in water. And its 4,26 liters per hundred kilometers will not be ruinous for your budget.
• However, petrol-powered versions of the Citigo are only available in the aftermarket, as the model has been redesigned to fit the EV trend.
• No, it didn’t seem to you, Volkswagen Up was twice on the list of “small cars”. The first version, which is published on the 7th line, is also equipped with a 1 liter engine, only under its hood is 89 hp.
• And the model that opens the top 3 is less powerful, it has only 74 hp. And the consumption of gasoline is 4,21 liters per 100 km.
• But its low power is more than justified by fewer trips to gas stations. The release of this model has already been discontinued, so look for it in the secondary market.
2. Suzuki Celerio
• Even a car as small and light as the Celerio with its 67 hp. can give you a pleasant feeling of speed. He feels at home on the narrow city streets, and on the highway can reach speeds of up to 155 kilometers per hour. And at the same time it consumes 4,07 liters per hundred kilometers.
• Unfortunately, the release of the Celerio hatchback was discontinued in 2019, so car sales ads will help you.
1. Suzuki Ignis
• This Japanese mini-SUV has a good ground clearance of 170 mm, stiffer suspension and high sills. And the last generation has become the so-called "mild hybrid".
• The car, which topped the rating of the most economical gasoline cars, is equipped with two engines at once: an electric 2.3 kW and a 1,2-liter gasoline. In the combined cycle, it consumes only 3,95 liters per 100 km.
• Add to that a spacious interior and generous standard equipment, and you've got a car that's definitely worth the money. In the Russian market, a used Suzuki Ignis will cost, on average, 300 rubles.
