Ah, the modern era! It brings us so many benefits. Faster travel, advanced technologies, easier communication… But at what cost? As the price of fossil fuels begins to climb dangerously, our wallets crumble like a house of cards in the wind. Indeed, between July 2021 and June 2023, Super 95 and Super 98 fuel prices increased by 21% and 19% respectively. The same goes for diesel, which increased by 19%.
This is an important question for anyone wishing to manage their budget, while having fun: Which vehicles elegantly combine economy and comfort?
We have carefully selected 10 cars that will perfectly match this one. Let’s go !
The city car: Citroën C1
Among the most fuel-efficient used cars and models, we find the famous Citroën C1. Ah, this thrifty little city car! Like a tightrope walker, she weaves with ease and agility through the cramped alleys of our cities. In addition, its low fuel consumption makes it a wise choice for the economical driver.
Sedans: Opel Astra and Peugeot 308
There are also these sedans, the Opel Astra and Peugeot 308, which elegantly combine comfort and economy. The 308 consumes just 3.5 L/100 km, making it an attractive choice. For its part, the Astra stands out among the most economical sedans, with a combined consumption of 4.5 to 6.2 L/100 km.
The sports car: Peugeot 208
Are you more into sporty vehicles? Here is a selection to suit your taste: the Peugeot 208 diesel, which, with its consumption of 3.2 L/100 km, cleverly combines dynamism and economy. A seductive combination, isn’t it?
SUVs: Peugeot 2008 and Citroën C3 Aircross
If your preference is for SUVs, consider the Peugeot 2008. Its appeal lies in its moderate consumption (between 4.7 and 5.7 L/100 km), its pleasant aesthetics and its generous interior space. And then there’s the Citroën C3 Aircross, which defends itself well with similar fuel consumption.
The spacious ones: Peugeot 3008 and Citroën C4
If you’re looking for volume, here are two options to consider: the Peugeot 3008 and the Citroën C4 SpaceTourer. The first, an SUV, offers a modest consumption of 4 L/100 km in diesel, while the second, a minivan, consumes between 4 and 4.7 L/100 km.
The luxurious: DS 3 Crossback
And luxury in all this? If this is your penchant, the DS 3 Crossback has something to seduce you. Luxury, avant-gardism, refinement… all for a fuel consumption of 8.1 L/100 km. What to be in heaven!
The wagon: Peugeot 5008
We do not forget the large families. For them, the Peugeot 5008 could be a relevant choice. With fuel consumption fluctuating between 5.5 and 7.3 L/100 km, it can accommodate up to 7 people. A bit more energy-intensive, sure, but comfort and versatility come at a price, right?
It is here, between the roar of the engines and the clicking of the ignition keys, that we stop.
Sure, you could spend less on fuel with an electric car, but there’s that certain something, that undeniable charm of an internal combustion engine purring under the hood. So, behind the wheel our dear readers, and don’t forget, the choice of car must be guided by a clever mix of economy, comfort and adaptability to your lifestyle.
