7 fuel-efficient cars you can buy in South Africa for less than R200,000 right now

South Africa’s petrol price is expected to remain relatively flat in November 2019, bringing little relief to embattled consumers.

According to the latest mid-month data from the Central Energy Fund (CEF), petrol prices are expected to increase for 95 grade and again drop for 93 grade.

Petrol 95 is expected to increase by 10 cents per litre, while petrol 93 is currently showing a decrease of 5 cents per litre.

Diesel, meanwhile, is reaming fairly flat, with an expected drop of between 0-2 cents per litre for 0.05% sulphur content and 0.005% sulphur content, respectively.

The price changes reflect the flattening out of both the USD/ZAR exchange rate month-to-date, as well as the relative stabilisation of international oil prices, despite reported incidents of attacks on oil-producing countries in the middle east.

With the flat fuel price bringing little relief, BusinessTech looked at some of the most fuel-efficient budget cars you can buy in South Africa right now.
