Most fuel-efficient crossovers from every brand in South Africa

The high cost of petrol in South Africa has been a talking point for the whole of 2023, and things are not expected to get much better in the new year.

As of December 2023, petrol 95 is sitting at an inland cost of R23.25, and diesel users aren’t terribly better off, with a litre of this fuel type now costing R21.99.

With fuel prices easily running into the thousands of rands per top-up, it’s important to consider whether your next car will be able to mitigate the damage to your wallet.

Luckily, South Africa’s fastest growing vehicle segment – crossovers – have a decent array of models that all promise to deliver a frugal consumption.
