Below are the top 10 most economical wagons in order of combined fuel consumption.

Spacious and practical, yet highly fuel efficient, all these wagons would make perfect family vehicles.

They all have quite small diesel engines that return excellent economy. First place is tied between the Golf and the i30 however the i30 is considerably cheaper and great value for money.

The Golf is well known for being one of the best cars around but the i30 is attracting very favourable reviews too.

Volkswagen Golf 1.6 Trendline

The most economical wagon is the Volkswagen Golf 1.6 Trendline.

The Golf wins awards for fun. Its 2009 collection of awards include World Car of the Year, Wheels Car of the Year and Cars Guide Car of the Year.

Its a great car in every way, particularly in its outstanding safety for which it has a five star rating. Seven airbags are standard, including a drivers knee bag. Two rear side airbags are optional.

The only slight disappointment from the 1.6 turbo diesel engine is a slight lack of low range torque, usually a defining feature of diesel engines. Otherwise its a great engine.
