Best cars for low fuel bills

If you're taking your car on holiday the best way to save money is to pick a car with low fuel bills

Taking a car on holiday can seem like the most cost-effective way of getting to your destination, but it can quickly become expensive if you spend a considerable amount of time behind the wheel. If you are planning a long drive the best way to reduce your bills is to look for a car that's economical, and below is our list of the best cars for low fuel bills.

Peugeot 208

Peugeot 208 Black Edition 2017

Long drives can mean fuel bills that start to rival flight tickets, so the more economical the car, the better. The 1.6 BlueHDi diesel in Peugeot’s 208 claims a staggering 94.2mpg, the highest official figure for any non-hybrid car on sale. Real-world mpg will be lower, but you’ll struggle to find a car that will eke more miles from a gallon of fuel. The 208 has the added benefit of being a practical supermini that drives well.
