Sunny weather never lasts in Britain – but which cars are best for tackling the deluge?
Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi 110 Bluedrive
Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi 110 Blue Drive 76.3mpg/97g/km - £16,895
The new Hyundai i30 takes the strong fuel economy record of the old one and improves on it yet further.
Best of all is the 1.6 CRDi Bluedrive variant, which averages 76.3mpg and emits 97g/km CO2.
How much more economical than average? 45%

They are simply far too expensive.
Greener dos'nt mean cheeper so you may as well buy the aulturnative normal run car.
Why are automobiles, even innovative "green" autos, so darned expensive in the UK?
I suppose that comes under the heading of a rhetorical question, huh?
Is it just me or does anyone else look at the big picture to understand why these new cars are actually greener???
The development and purchase costs are far higher than the models before hence more money has to be made through the chain....................from developer to buyer
Therefore to buy one you have to spend more work more pay more..............and what about the so called not so green car your are replacing?????...........Oh yes someone else will be driving it so its still on the road! So infact you are increasing the g/km!!!! By the two cars on the road.
But then again it could always be sent for scrap at a poluted old fashioned junk yard somewhere chucking out old exhaust fumes and crap out in the air
Bless them all!!!
Love the comment about electric cars. All well and good but the electricity has to be generated somewhere. The more electric cars we have the more power stations we need to charge them. All you are doing is moving the problem and not fixing it.
Diesel low emission cars are the most practicable and fuel efficient at the moment.
I agree Except where i live we never see a councillor or politician except on tv
They better work for it this time if they expect my vote
as for fuel prices I have given up trying to afford petrol I buy £30.00 a week and when its gone its gone public transport is a joke and too expensive so i ride a bike walk or put off going out My advice is Don't buy chinese goods its all junk anyway buy quality and you buy once.
I was realy interested in an Electric car, but I couldn't get an extension lead long enough to reach work.
