For a price of 10,220 euros, the 60-hp Fabia is a good deal. Those who are willing to spend another 1300 euros will receive, in addition to the 15 HP extra, better equipped gear, all without a higher fuel consumption. For those who travel mostly outside the city, the 90 hp turbo engine is a good pick, whose price goes from 12,388 euros, which turns Fabia from a city car into a multi-purpose car.
9. Land Rover Defender 2.2D – 15.8 seconds.
Introduced in 2011, the 2.2 l engine struggles hard with the two tons of the British climber and its aerodynamics are almost non-existent. But these are not the strengths of the great model: no one buys a Defender to beat times on the Nordschleife. It’s a car preferred by off-road trial enthusiasts.
8. Opel Corsa 1.2 l – 16.0 seconds.
A “worthy” sprint indeed – the 70 hp version is not doing well with the minimum of 1,120 kg of the German model. And why then would you choose it? Just because of its basic price of 11,180 euros. There are no other trumps, compared to any of the other engines in the range. Much more adapted to this bodywork is the engine displacing 1.3 l and 90 hp, which, for only 190 euros extra, is more fuel efficient and especially more fun driving.
7. Citroen C3 1.0 l – 16.2 seconds.
The combination of 1,135 kg and 68 hp does not honor the innovator of the French car manufacturer. However, besides the price, we can also discuss about excellent fuel consumption, only 4.3 l / 100 km, being the most fuel efficient gasoline engine in the range – a step up for a surplus of 14 hp, 2 seconds and 11 km / h, all priced at 11,508 euros.
6. Fiat 500L Living 1.3D MTA 7L – 16.3 seconds.
Family car qualities are obvious when we relate to interior space, rolling comfort, and safety features. That’s why 19,645 euros is not exaggerated, especially since the fuel consumption average is only 4.0 l / 100 km. For a further 1,200 euros, however, you can benefit from a major improvement in all the dynamic parameters of the car, from 0-100 km / h in just 12 seconds, the speed is 181 km / h, rising from 164 km / h, and fuel consumption will increase by 0.5 l / 100 km.
5.Kia Rio – 16.5 seconds
Negative performance will surely be forgiven by customers due to the efficient of the 3-cylinder engine, which is satisfied with 3.3 l / 100 km on average, and emits only 86 g CO2 / 100km.
However, if fuel economy is not crucial you can opt for a more refined engine of with 4 cylinders. The difference of 347 euros, from 12,554 euros to 12,901 euros, brings an increased 50 Nm of torque and an improvement of nearly 2 seconds of the 0-100 km / h sprint.
4. Smart Forfour 1.1 l – 16.7 seconds.
It is surprising that the 61 hp version is chosen by some customers, to the detriment of the variant that develops 10 hp, for a difference of only 552 euros (11,250 vs 11,802 euros). And that’s because, besides the lower price, nothing tilts the balance in favor of the weaker engine.
3. Ford Fiesta 1.0 l – 16.8 seconds.
The EcoBoost family producer, who has won so many awards, the downsizing master, has given an exponent to the podium of slowest cars. And yet, the one liter naturally aspirated Fiesta, makes one hundred kilometers in nearly 17 seconds. It costs 11,800 euros and consumes 4.3 l / 100 km. By virtue of these two advantages, it is a good choice.
2. VW Caddy 2.0 TDI 75 HP – 17.6 seconds.
This has two major advantages: the price of 18,568 euros and fuel consumption of 4.6 l / 100 km. Switching to the next engine variant requires an investment of 2,000 euros in this situation. Of course, the two models cannot be compared in anything other than fuel consumption, which remains unchanged.
1. Renault Kangoo ZE – 20.3 seconds.
Would you have expected the slowest car on the market to be an electric one?
The purpose of Kangoo ZE is to transport 5 people from point A to point B at a minimum cost. Do we appreciate that? Not. But when you have a fleet of such cars, everything that matters is efficiency, and the Kangoo ZE is probably the most efficient fleet vechicle.
