A new green supermini

Renault Clio is one of many small cars available to the British consumer. It’s never been one of the high polluters on the roads due to its engine size but if you’re a fan of this car it is now available in an even more environmental friendly package. Renault recently launched the Clio Expression Eco which promises CO2 emissions of just under 94g/km. Couple this with its price tag of only £12.450 it’s also the cheapest supermini available on the market with emissions under 100g/km.

With revised engine mapping, taller gearing and low-rolling-resistance tyres, the new Clio will return around 78.4 mpg. The low emissions means the car is exempt from the London Congestion Charge and it zero-rates in relation to road tax. To test out this new Renault, Northwich in Cheshire is one place you’ll find a dealership.

Other cars with low emissions are the Toyota Prius T3 which offer smaller, lower-drag wheels and emits just 89g/km of CO2 and has a fuel economy of 72.7 mpg. The Prius was the first mainstream eco car to gain cult appeal and has proven very popular amongst TV- and movie-personalities both here at home and in Hollywood. The price tag in comparison to the new Clio is however almost twice as much with a new Prius setting you back at least £20,695.

A car which pricewise settles between these two cars is the Volkswagen Polo Blue Motion. It’s got a diesel engine which will return 80.7 mpg and emits 91g/km of CO2. Prices start at around £14,860.

In addition to these three cars there is a raft of others consumers can chose from too if being green is something they’re interested in – Seat, Smart and Fiat are three other manufacturers worth checking out.
