Suzuki Celerio 1.0 - 61.9mpg

It might not be the most exhilarating of drives, but no other petrol car can come close to the Suzuki Celerio for real world fuel economy. Indeed, according to Real MPG submissions, the peppy 1.0-litre petrol returns 94 per cent of its advertised economy, which equates to a superb 61.9mpg. Opt for the automatic and that figure rises to almost 64mpg.
