Dacia Logan Access 1.2

List price: £6995

Official mpg rating: 48.7mpg

Real MPG: 46mpg (94 per cent)

One of the very cheapest cars on sale on the UK, the Logan hides its cost-cutting well and offers masses of space for a very low outlay. And while 46mpg isn’t ground-breaking by any means, it’s still 94 per cent of the claimed average – so you can’t accuse Dacia of pulling the wool over your eyes. The relatively low average economy rating is down to Dacia’s use of older technology from parent company Renault’s parts warehouse, but buyers can hardly complain when their estate has come this cheap.
