A perfect example of such a hero is the fantastically fuel-efficient, all-new Nissan Micra, which will help you stretch your bucks even further as you start to splurge on Christmas gifts. The Micra, which is revitalising the Upper B hatchback segment, has a phenomenal combined fuel consumption of just 5.1 litres per 100km.
The fuel efficiency of city cars, particularly those with small-capacity, turbo-charged engines is constantly improving and some compact cars are even on par with petrol-electric hybrids, which traditionally record very low consumption.
“The fuel efficiency of cars such as the Micra can’t be overstated as there have been several fuel price increases that have had a financial impact on all consumers,” said Alda Gildenhuys, Nissan SA Passenger Vehicles Product Manager.
The Micra has a 66kW, 140Nm turbo-charged petrol engine that delivers driving pleasure together with outstanding practicality. Whether it’s zipping around through grid-locked traffic, or on long stretches of open road, the Micra delivers new levels of performance and comfort.
“Even if you have a car that’s truly fuel efficient such as the Micra, you can still save fuel and money in other ways, and that’s why we’ve come up with the fuel-saving tips below,” said Gildenhuys.
