Who says that fast cars have to consume more fuel? Here's a list of cars that have twice the power of the usual econobox yet sips on petrol.

15 Aug 2019

To make more power, you add more air and fuel, so it is normal for powerful cars to consume more of the latter. However, in recent years, technology of cars has seen vast advancement. Engines are now much more efficient than ever, thanks to the help of forced induction and hybrid technologies. As such, the best of both worlds actually exists, and the following is a list of such cars which are pretty fast and have good fuel consumption as well.

How we picked these cars:

1. More than 200bhp (almost twice the horsepower of a Toyota Vios)

2. 0 - 100km/h in less than 7 seconds (faster than a 2007 BMW Z4 2.5i)

3. 15km/L or better fuel consumption (similar to the current Hyundai Avante)

4. Costs less than $200,000
