Fuel-efficiency persuades vehicle purchasers
(NC)—With so many new vehicle choices, how does anyone narrow down their buying decision?
Natural Resources Canada points out that between vehicles in the same class, the differences in fuel consumption can be substantial.
Compare mid-size autos for example:
The most efficient mid-size vehicle for 2012 was the Nissan Leaf at a cost of $5,060 over 200,000 kilometres (km)
• The most efficient wagon for 2012 was the Toyota Prius at a cost of $9,660 over 200,000 km
• The most efficient minivan for 2012 was the Mazda5 at a cost of $17,430 over 200,000 km.
• To avoid unnecessary fuel costs, choose the most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets your everyday needs.
