JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng - With the fuel price on the rise almost every time there is a price change, it has now become even more important for new cars to drive for a longer distance without having to fill-up each time you pass a petrol station, says the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers .

Naamsa says it releases a list of South Africa’s top-selling vehicles every month but just how fuel-efficient are they?


All grades of petrol increased by 47c/litre in June 2015. To present the most fuel-efficient top-selling cars, says Naamsa, Drive South Africa selected the vehicle model with the lowest fuel consumption in its category, based on litres/100km.

According to Drive SA: “Measuring fuel-efficiency, each vehicle’s fuel consumption and fuel cost was calculated over 100km.” A table released by Drive SA shows the country's top vehicles, based on category, ranked by fuel consumption and cost.

Has your car made the list?
