With petrol and diesel prices continuing to rise in April, the fuel-efficiency of vehicles has come into sharp focus.

The National takes a look at what are widely considered to be the five most fuel-efficient vehicles on the road in the UAE.
Cost-conscious motorists love driving the Suzuki Dzire because of how much value it offers.
The Japanese car gives drivers 24.12 kilometres per litre (km/l) and purchasing a brand new one will set you back in the region of Dh36,900.
In second place is another Suzuki, the Swift, which gives 23.75km/l, according to Drive Ninja, a comparison site in the UAE. This makes it an attractive choice for those trying to squeeze as much value as possible from their fuel spending.
The price of a brand new model starts at slightly under Dh49,000.
Fuel-conscious motorists could also do a lot worse than taking a look at the Suzuki Baleno, which offers 22.35km/l.
To purchase a new Baleno, you should expect to pay in the region of Dh45,900.
Breaking Suzuki’s stranglehold on this list is the Toyota Yaris, which gives motorists 22km/l.
To buy one brand new will cost slightly under Dh60,000.
The Toyota Raize is another popular car with car owners conscious about what they spend at the pump as it offers around 19km/l.
Be prepared to pay about Dh57,000 for a brand new model.
