Car insurance customers considering what model of car to buy with a view to being environmentally friendly might be surprised to learn that smaller engines do not necessarily mean lower toxic emissions, thanks to a new app released by Volvo.

The new smartphone app released by Volvo will now inform people looking for affordable car insurance which vehicles are the cleanest and dirtiest in regards to noxious emissions.

Thus far, the new app has dispelled the myth that a small car always means a low emission car by proving that a 2.5 petrol V70 estate has half the toxic emissions of some small cars such as the 1.2 litre Fiat 500 Start Stop supermini.

The app has been built with Clean Green Cars using data supplied by the Vehicle Certification Agency, the government agency which publishes the official environmental details of all new cars sold in the UK.

Peter Rask, regional president for Volvo Car UK, said the app helps consumers make "informed decisions by giving them access to the total emissions data of their car".
