True MPG: best family cars 2018

This version of the Vauxhall Astra is the most efficient family car we've ever tested, averaging an impressive 46.4mpg in town and more than 73mpg on rural roads. This 1.6-litre diesel engine is our pick of the range for company car drivers, with a CO2 figure of 97g/km. It's brisk, too, taking just over 10 seconds to get to 60mph, and it is also very refined. If you're looking for a comfortable and economical family hatchback, look no further.
