The best cars of 2015: Diesel spend less

The best cars of 2015: Diesel spend less

In preparing this ranking which ones spend less fuel, we have set in Real average consumption obtained by our Technical center in two runs. With these data we calculated the proportion employed in the homologation of a car. This is none other than 60% road use and 40% in terms of urban consumption.

Its novelty, some cars like the Renault Kadjar or Skoda Fabia They have been tested with different bodies and more than one engine or changes speed manual and automatic. However, even though some of those versions would also be within the top 25 list, we've removed the classification, reserving that honor to the absolute figure.

The interpretation of the results leads to a couple of interesting conclusions. The first is that the downsizing -reduction of this displacement and compensation due to the improvement in supercharging - is now fully established and engines are just over 1.6 l among the best.

The second conclusion has to do with how most modern automatic transmissions not only are not a large increase but recorded consumption, especially dual clutch as EDC Renault or Volkswagen DSG, They allow some even better than their gasoline counterparts consumption. Moreover, unlike gasoline, there is still few turbodiesel engines three cylinders, possibly motivated PORDA difficulty in mitigating the vibrations of operation.

Finally, it is surprising to see how a small SUV like Opel Mokka or Honda HR-V They are included in its own right among the list of top; the signal path is extraurbano consumption at a rate sufficiently moderate to aerodynamics not overly penalize the figure achieved.

After all considerations and analysis, it is remarkable how PSA has hit the mark with their engines 1.6 HDI you not only get the absolute best results -in the variant of 100 hp maximum power that premiered on C4-Cactus- but colonizes the list of top with up to 5 in the list of the 25 bodies as diverse as Peugeot 208, the Citroen DS 5 or C4 Picasso.

Regardless, if we were to complete a podium the best engine valuing other elements besides consumption should quote a veteran engine as the 1.5 dCi Renault, in this case mounted on a Kadjar, and 1.6 i-DTEC The Honda able to put on the list to two cars with aerodynamic so unfavorable priori such as the Civic and CR-V bulky.
