Suzuki cars offer excellent MPG in the real world, tests confirm

Drivers of Suzuki motor cars from Cirencester dealership Pebley Beach could be saving themselves pounds at the pumps after a major survey put three models in the Top Ten for real-world fuel efficiency.

The True MPG test by What Car? magazine used a real-world driving route to show drivers what fuel economy they can really expect from their car.

The test found that the compact crossover Suzuki Ignis SHVS offered the best real-world fuel efficiency at 59.6 miles per gallon.

In second place was another Suzuki – the Celerio 1.0. And claiming joint sixth place was the Suzuki Baleno 1.0.

"The SHVS version of the Ignis, which is front rather than four-wheel drive, is the most efficient car we've ever tested," wrote What Car? editor Steve Huntingford.

"It's a mild hybrid, which means a small electric motor works alongside its 1.2-litre petrol engine, helping to get you moving and reducing the strain on the engine."

Award-winning City car the Celerio achieved a real-world MPG of 57. "Despite being one of the cheapest new cars around, the Celerio comes with a decent array of equipment, including air conditioning, a DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity," said What Car?

And the hatchback Baleno achieved a sixth place real-world MPG of 55.2, which it shared with the Skoda Citigo and the Renault Kadjar.

What Car? tested vehicles on a on a rolling road under strictly controlled laboratory conditions at Millbrook Proving Ground. The tests are based on real-world driving data across a selection of different roads, giving what the magazine says are more true to life fuel economy figures than those published by manufacturers. 

Dominic Threlfall, managing director of Pebley Beach, said:  "The Suzuki Ignis,  Celerio and Baleno represent great value for money motoring – both on purchase price and fuel economy.

"The results of these real-world tests are great news for anyone currently driving, or thinking of buying, one of these models from us."

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
