As every driver knows, we’re getting less petrol and diesel for our pound these days – making fuel economy a more important consideration than ever before.

But while the latest official economy tests, known as WLTP, are designed to be more representative, the MPG figures you’re likely to get in the real world can still be very different – leaving you with a bigger hole in your wallet than you might have expected.

To help you with this, we carry out our own independent testing on a wide variety of new models as part of our Real MPG tests, in order to find out what kind of economy you should really expect from the car you’re interested in. In this article, we’re looking at the most fuel-efficient small SUVs, ranked in order of average Real MPG.
