Most fuel-efficient hatchbacks from every brand in South Africa

Petrol prices in South Africa are a huge burden for the average household right now, and it doesn’t look like things are going to get much better for some time.

Combined with an uncertain economic outlook for the foreseeable future in this election year, a relatively affordable and fuel-efficient car is a smart investment for anyone in need of a new set of wheels.

Luckily, there are still 17 different brands in South Africa that have hatchbacks for sale with a good economy claim, making those trips to the pump less frequent and less of a drain on your wallet.

Unsurprisingly, the most efficient small car in the country is also a hybrid, namely the Honda Fit HEV, which uses just 3.7 litres for every 100km.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the Abarth 500 hot hatchback, which still manages to average 5.8l/100km despite its sporty leanings.
