Real-world MPG: cars that are cheap to buy and run
All these cars have a Target Price of less than £10,000 and a True MPG of more than 40mpg...
6 Skoda Citigo 1.0 60 Greentech 5dr – official 68.1mpg: True MPG 49.1mpg
The Citigo is one of the best city cars around: it's great to drive, well-built and cheap to buy and run. Granted, it’s not as classy as the Volkswagen Up, but a five-door Greentech SE model has lots of kit, emits 95g/km of CO2 and costs less than £10,000. That’s a bargain in our book.
5 Suzuki Swift 1.2 5dr – official 56.5mpg; True MPG 51.7mpg
The Suzuki Swift is a smart-looking supermini with good handling. It's also attractively priced and has lots of equipment for your money. It's not as quiet on the road as other cars in its class, but it should prove cheap to run and was able to get very close to its official economy figures in our True MPG tests.

4 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 – official 65.7mpg; True MPG 53.5mpg
The second of two models from Suzuki to make this list is the Celerio. The five-door city car is slightly bigger than the Volkswagen Up, Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii and has room for five to boot. Two trim levels are available, both with air conditioning as standard.
