The 1.5 Blue dCi offers mixed consumption of 5 l/100 km. Perfect for racking up the kilometers without thinking about your consumption.

Champion among gasolines, the Toyota Aygo 5.3 l/100 km. A very good performance for a city car equipped with a gasoline engine. Certainly, the latter is rather modest with its 72 hp, but it remains no less pleasant in town and more comfortable than ever outside of urban areas. That being said, despite some small flaws, it remains the most economical petrol city car. Knowing that in this category, there is competition!
