I'm looking at downsizing my mazda atenza due to fuel costs. I have moved out of town and now drive an hour to work and an hour home every day at about 100km/hr most of the way. I'm just looking for some advice please on what would be more fuel efficient on the open road out of Mazda axela, mazda 3, honda fit, toyota corolla or something better if you have any ideas. I'm probably looking for a slightly older car round the year 2000-2005 due to price. Thanks :)


Hi out of the models you have mentioned the Jazz / Civic would be the more economical option, The Corolla wouldn't be too bad either. If you have found models you like and want to compare both running costs and safety you can visit
