We have the VW Polo with cylinder deactivation, the Honda Jazz Hybrid, a diesel Hyundai i20 and a thee-cylinder Peugeot 208. Not surprisingly, most of the cars weren't able to produce the claimed numbers. Among the big disappointments were the Peugeot 208 VTi 82, which only managed 5.5 l/100km because of its lack-luster three-cylinder engine. The Jazz Hybrid also seemed like a letdown, binge drinking 5.7 liters of fuel during the 100 km test. At almost €22,000 as tested, it's also way too expensive.
The Polo BlueGT is more of a hot hatch with 140 PS coming from its 1.4-liter TSI engine. It's reasonably efficient for what it is, but not a clean car. Skoda's Fabia 1.2 TDI Greenline manages to impress in Autobild, but there can only really be one winner, the Yaris Hybrid.
It's only a few hundred Euros more expensive than the less powerful Yaris and is much more efficient.
