Green Awards 2012

Fun cars

The best green fun car of 2012 has to prove that enjoying your car needn’t mean damaging the planet.
Rapid advances in technology mean that sporty cars are no longer gas-guzzling beasts. Lightweight construction and sophisticated engines – not to mention the acceptance of diesel as a suitable fuel – have drastically reduced the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of such cars over the last few years.
Our winner will be the car that most successfully blends fun with a green conscience.
