- Ford Transit Connect – 6TDCi 95 Econetic S/S
This is the newest vehicle in our line up. Its vastly improved aerodynamic design, along with a 1.6-litre duratorq engine combined to produce a staggering 67.3mpg.
- Mercedes Benz Citan – 109Cdi BlueEfficiency
The Mercedes-Benz Citan combines quality, usability and economy from its BlueEfficiency engine to give you a perfect package to go about your business.
- Fiat Doblo Cargo – 3mJet Ecojet
One of the main focuses when designing the latest Doblo model was fuel economy. The new Ecojet engines reduce fuel consumption by low rolling-resistance tyres, an intelligent alternator and aerodynamic pack. It also saves 5.3mpg over the standard version with stop/start fitted.
- Citroen Berlingo – 6 e-HDi 90 EGT6 Airdream
The Berlingo is available in a semi-automatic ETG6 transmission with fuel-saving Airdream technology. This will see your fuel economy increase by 5% compared to an equivalent model.
- Vauxhall Combo – 3CDTi 90 Ecoflex
While the sister van, the Fiat Doblo, was facelifted for 2015 and received new Ecojet engines, Vauxhall decided to keep with the old design engines. As a result, the fuel economy falls short of its younger sibling but the small 1.3-litre still manages a respectable 58.9mpg.
