Volvo C30 DRIVe

The most economical coupe is the Volvo C30 DRIVe.

Its the comfortable winner here and Volvo have achieved it by keeping things simple but doing it well. This has kept the price tag down.

Long gear ratios and an engine modified to run smoothly at low revs, along with super smooth aerodynamics are the main fuel savers. Efficient tyres and low friction oils further help its fuel economy.

A gear shift indicator advises the driver when its best to change gears to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. This is a feature becoming more common in economical cars.
