True MPG: most efficient SUVs 2019
What Car?'s True MPG tests show what you can really expect from a car. Here we reveal the most and least efficient SUVs we've ever tested...
7. Seat Ateca 1.6 TDI 115
True MPG: 50.2mpg
The Ateca is one of the most enjoyable SUVs to drive and a former What Car? award winner. We're particularly keen on the turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol model, but the 1.6-litre diesel is the most efficient option, with a real-world average of 50.2mpg.
True MPG 50.9mpg
Don't be fooled by the Ignis's small size – this is a seriously impressive car. It's deceptively spacious, offers a generous amount of equipment and is very cheap to buy and run. This isn't even the most efficient version, as we'll explain later.
5. Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi
True MPG 51.4mpg
Kia's Sportage gives you a lot of equipment for a very reasonable price, especially if you go for our recommended 2 trim level. It's also a practical choice and the 1.7-litre diesel engine is capable of 51.4mpg. Just don't expect the Sportage to be particularly refined or enjoyable to drive.
