MPG hero
Audi TT 2.0 TDI
Target Price £26,094
Economy — Average 53.3mpg; Out of town 65.7mpg;
In town 40.4mpg

The TT has always been a cracking car, but with the new 2.0-litre diesel engine it’s economical, too. It’s as great to drive as the petrol and will hit 62mph in 7.5 seconds. Its huge desirability means selling it on after three years will get you back plenty of cash. If you’d rather have the soft-top model, you’ll get 51.4mpg.

Budget buy
BMW 120d ES
Target Price £21,005
Economy — Average 58.9mpg; Out of town 68.9mpg;
In town 58.9mpg

Okay, so £22k isn’t exactly spare change, but the price is a lot less than some rivals, and you’ll get a decent discount if you shop around. The 120d will sprint to 62mph in 7.6 seconds, and it handles superbly. If you like its looks, the 1 Series Coupé should hold its value well, too.

The top five…
Petrols over 200bhp
1 Audi A5 2.0 TFSI (208bhp) — 42.8mpg
2 BMW 325i Coupé (215bhp) — 39.8mpg
3 BMW 330i Coupé (268bhp) — 39.2mpg
4 BMW 630i Auto (268bhp) — 36.7mpg
5 Audi TTS (268bhp) — 35.8mpg
