Fuel efficiency is a vital factor to take into consideration prior to buying a vehicle anywhere in the world, and the UAE is no exception. Fuel efficiency is the term used to refer to a vehicle’s ability to extract as much energy as it can from an amount of fuel. A car that can produce a greater amount of energy from a set amount of fuel than another vehicle is said to be more fuel-efficient. Cars that require less fuel to go longer distances will end up costing their owner less money in the long term. There are a number of fuel-efficient options that readily available in the UEA that drivers should look for when considering buying a new car.
The Peugeot 308 Blue Hdi is a stylish, small and well-equipped family hatchback with a large boot and punchy engine. It also holds the Guinnessworld record for being the world’s most fuel-efficient conventional car as of 2019, as it only needs an average of 3.13 litres to drive 100 kilometres. All models have an upmarket feel with attractive exterior looks and a classy interior, and it is a long-time frontrunner with a good sale rank within its category.
The Ford Fiesta Econetic was produced specifically to improve fuel consumption, something that the vehicle certainly delivers. It is the most fuel-efficient and lowest CO2-emitting passenger car that Ford has ever produced, and the company has already announced more models with similar characteristics.
The Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion is the banner name given to a whole group of car models made by the company that have become renowned for their fuel efficiency. These vehicles mix a fuel-efficient engine and fuel-efficient design with bodies that are more aerodynamic and also come with an auto start-stop feature, low-resistance rolling tyres and a programmed battery-charging system. In 2011, a Volkswagen Passat 1.6 TDI BlueMotion set a Guinnessworld record for the longest distance travelled on just one tank of fuel.
The Renault Clio 1.5 dCi is an OTT upgrade of the original model, a supermini car that now comes with larger exteriors and offers more space on the inside than was previously the case. The accommodation in the front seat is very good, as the driver is able to adjust their seat for height and lots of headroom. The first Clio model has actually been in production for a very long time, and if you are in possession of it, then perhaps it is time to upgrade to the new model, which is available in Dubai and throughout the UAE.
The Chevrolet Spark is a small and sleek vehicle that provides great fuel efficiency, producing 98 horsepower from a 1.4 litre four-cylinder engine. Most of the new model’s restyling is at the front, where a more handsome exterior has replaced the simpler styling of the original model.
Whatever fuel-efficient vehicle you decide to buy, you should make sure that you purchase or extend your existing car insurance at the same time, to comply with UAE laws and ensure the safety of you, your passengers, your vehicle and other road users.
