Top 10 cars that can do 70mpg -- and are fun to boot

IT was always going to be controversial to pick out 10 cars which not only can do 70mpg or more (from 4.03 litres per 100km) but are also genuinely worth having and enjoying as well.

I am sure there are as many left out as are included and, like all lists, the selection could be challenged on a number of fronts.
And we must assume the figures were all achieved under the same sort of driving conditions.
Anyway, here is their top 10, with some edited comments.
