6. Seat Ibiza 1.0 Eco TSI 95 – official 68.9mpg; True MPG 52.2mpg

The facelifted Ibiza gets new engines and new infotainment features. It’s not enough for it to trouble the excellent Skoda Fabia, but it is definitely worth a look.

5. Audi A1 1.0 TFSI 95 – official 67.3mpg; True MPG 53.4mpg

No other car on this list can compete with the A1’s premium feel. On top of that it’s also efficient, good to drive and more practical than a Mini.

4. Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI 95 Bluemotion – official 68.9mpg; True MPG 56.5mpg

Buyers after a classy small car need look no further than the Polo. It's refined and well priced and benefits from a plush cabin.

3. Toyota Yaris 1.5 VVT-i Hybrid – official 78.5mpg; True MPG 57.8mpg

Yaris buyers get a spacious, well-equipped small car at a decent price, although they do have to put up with a plasticky interior.
