Cars with under 120g co2 Emissions

Save money on cars with higher miles per gallon and lower car tax

Why choose a low co2 emission car?

Even if we ignore the fact that the planet is quickly choking (Something successive governments seem to be able to do without conscience), the benefits to all of us of greener cars are becoming harder to ignore. With oil prices, and therefore petrol prices seeming to increase with every visit to the pumps and road fund licenses due to rise year on year, you may be forgiven for thinking things can’t really get any worse. However, following London’s introduction of the congestion charge, other cities look certain to follow this model, Manchester has already announced its intention to begin charging motorists to drive into the city centre and many other cities across the UK including Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Bristol are all looking into the practicalities of introducing congestion charges to cut down on city centre traffic.

Petrol Prices – With Oil prices having more than doubled in less than a year, prices at the petrol pumps have continued to increase dramatically, this increase has made fuel economy a much higher priority for many new car buyers and with advances in engine technology it is now possible to achieve more than seventy miles per gallon on the combined cycle.

Car Tax – With all new cars having their road fund licenses calculated on the amount of Co2 they produce, drivers are now rewarded with much lower tax rates for the lowest polluting vehicles, in fact some new cars have zero tax rates.

Congestion Charges – As more cities look to follow London’s example and introduce congestion charges it may be time to take a look at a hybrid vehicle, the Toyota Prius and the Honda Civic Hybrid are both exempt from the London Congestion Charge, so if you are a regular driver into the city centre you could save yourself over £1500 per annum.

New Toyota Prius  
New Toyota Prius 1.5 VVT-i Save over £1500.00
Since its launch, the Toyota Prius has stolen a bit of a march over its competitors. It may have been seen as a bit of a gimmick in its earliest incarnation, but things have certainly moved on since then, opinions have changed and the Prius is now a regular sight all over the UK and even more so in London where the Prius is exempt from the Congestion Charge. Powered by a 1.5 VVT-I petrol engine and a high output electric motor, the Prius switches effortlessly between the two, using the electric motor at lower speeds of up to 28mph, above that and the petrol engine takes over, ideal for city centre driving.This Model has now been replaced by the 1.8 VVT-i.

New Honda Civic Hybrid Save over £1300.00
Honda began there quest for a mainstream hybrid with the launch of the Insight, unfortunately Toyota soon launched the Prius and Honda found themselves with what appeared to be a totally impractical car when compared its rival. Not to be beaten, Honda went on to develop and launch the new Civic Hybrid. As with the Prius the Civic Hybrid is popular in London as it is exempt from the Congestion Charge, but you don’t need to live in London to get the best out of the Civic Hybrid and many people prefer the Civic over the Prius purely and simply because it looks like an ordinary car and drives like one too.

New Volkswagen Polo bluemotion  
New Volkswagen Polo Bluemotion 1.4 TDI Save over £1000.00
Volkswagen have worked hard to make the Polo Bluemotion as economical and planet friendly as they can. It’s powered by a 1.4 litre, three cylinder, diesel engine that is fitted with a with a variable-geometry turbocharger that gives maximum assistance at low speeds, it also recirculates the exhaust gases and makes use of a particulate filter to further reduce emissions. This combination, along with lightweight alloys, low-rolling-resistance tyres and a smoother bumper and grille mean the Polo Bluemotion emits an astonishingly low 99 g/km, the result, zero road tax and 74.3 mpg on the combined cycle. Low cost motoring at its best.

New SEAT IBIZA 1.4 TDi Ecomotive Save over £1000.00
Also on offer from the Volkswagen stable is the SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive, it uses all the tricks developed by Volkswagen for the Bluemotion to reduce the Co2 emissions and it also weighs in 22 kg lighter than its Ibiza siblings, the good news though, is you will find you don’t have to compromise that much to keep your credentials green. Air Con comes as standard, as does electric windows, you also get a more than adequate six speaker stereo system with an auxiliary jack plug and even with all that Co2 emissions are pegged at 99 g/km meaning you don’t pay any annual road tax.

New BMW 1 Series 118d  
New BMW 1 Series 118d EfficientDynamics Save over £3000.00
You may be forgiven for wondering why you’ve come across a BMW amongst this list of cars, it shows however, just how seriously all manufacturers are now taking the issue of pollution caused by vehicles. The BMW 1-Series 118d EfficientDynamics makes use of a regenerative braking system and an automatic stop-start function, this doesn’t seem to effect performance, 0 – 62 mph in around nine seconds and a top speed of 130 mph, it does however effect emissions though and the 118d EfficientDynamics emits a frugal 119 g/km, proving you don’t need to sacrifice everything to do your little bit for the planet.

New Skoda Fabia 1.4 TDI PD 80 GreenLine Save over £900.00
The third car from the Volkswagen group to have a trip to the wind tunnel and get a few engine tweaks is the Skoda Fabia Greenline. Although it doesn’t quite match up to the Polo Bluemotion or the Ibiza Ecomotive, the Fabia Greenline is none the less far more frugal than it’s non Greenline siblings, in fact if you fill the tank in a Greenline you should have enough fuel to cover 689 miles, put into perspective, you should travel a full seventy five miles further than the standard Fabia 2 1.4 TDI and as the Greenline only has a £250 premium over its sibling it won’t take long before you start reaping the rewards.

New Citroen C1 1.0i Vibe 3dr  
New Citroen C1 1.0i Vibe 3dr Save over £1400.00
Although the car we are looking at here is the Citroen C1, but you could just as easily take a look at the Peugeot 107 or the Toyota Aygo as they all share the same platforms and the same engines, that having been said, the C1 was chosen purely and simply down to the fact that it’s the cheapest of the three manufacturers offerings. Designed in collaboration between the manufacturers, the C1, Aygo and 107 are all adept city cars with low tax banding and very good MPG figures, slight cosmetic design features are really the only thing that set the models apart, that and the fact that Citroen generally run offers making the C1 a slightly more attractive proposition.

New MINI Cooper D Clubman Save over £440.00
Sometimes it’s hard to be green and still retain that little bit of individuality, not so with the MINI Clubman, it may be economical and tick all the right green boxes, but it still retains that quirkiness that you get with all members of the MINI family, in fact we could have chosen any of the new diesels in the MINI range as they all benefit from electric steering, BMW’s brake regeneration system, stop-start technology and a common-rail direct injection diesel engine - all of which when combined make the Clubman diesel a very clean and economical car. It may not be the most practical car in the world, but it’s fun and it will help to keep your conscience clear.

New Audi A3 1.9 TDIe  
New Audi A3 1.9 TDI e Save over £1600.00
Another car from the Volkswagen / Audi stable to visit the lean green machine is the A3, or more specifically the A3 1.9 TDI e, a reworked diesel unit, aerodynamic tweaks, low-resistance tyres and a ‘recommended gear’ display all combine to reduce Co2 emissions to under the 120g/km mark. As you would expect with an Audi build quality is excellent, so if you want a car with green credentials, but can’t see yourself in a G – Wiz the Audi is a great compromise. Road Tax is only £35.00 per annum and the A3 1.9 TDI e will return 62.8 mpg on the combined cycle, all in all, the A3 works out to be an extremely frugal car.

New Volkswagen Golf 1.9 BlueMotion S TDI DPF Save over £1500.00
Possibly one of the most popular cars in the UK, the Volkswagen Golf is a welcome addition to the green car club, as, at the end of the day, efficient cars won’t be accepted unless they are cars people want to drive. As with the Polo Bluemotion, the Golf Bluemotion has had a trip to the wind tunnel to reduce its drag coefficient, the addition of low-rolling-resistance tyres and a flow-optimized underbody have also helped to reduce the overall fuel consumption figures, and in turn, to get the Co2 emissions below that magical 120 g/km mark. So if you want to make a difference, but don’t particularly want to compromise on comfort and style, there is always the Golf Bluemotion.
