These so called people's car with small engines of less than 1200 cc is very economical. We have 2 cars, an SUV with a 2.3 engine versus my small car of 1.2 engine which is almost half of the SUV. In consumption, yeah, it's just half. So we always use that small car when there are only 2 of us who will ride much more if there is only me. It's a big savings driving a small car in terms of fuel cost. An added bonus is the ease of getting a parking space. That's why our SUV is normally used for long family trips only.
