Using the car comparison tool
When buying a car it can be very useful to compare more than one model side by side. Using the car comparison tool car buyers can select one to three models, either new, used or a combination of both, and then see key data for each of the models.
Within the fuel economy section car buyers can see the Official MPG (Combined) and also view the Real MPG, a calculated figure which provides a more realistic indication of acheivable fuel economy in real world conditions. Where there is no Official MPG figure, namely for plug-in vehicles, Next Green Car has provided an estimated MPG Equivalent figure.
The vehicle emissions section shows the NGC Rating , Official CO2 emissions, the Euro Standard for the model and data for the regulated emissions (NOx and particulates). The two tax sections show the car tax, congestion charge and company car tax payable for each model to enable easy cost comparison across models.
