However, after awareness campaigns, more and more people are ditching their large, inefficient cars and are opting for smaller, more efficient cars for the benefits that they have. For instance, small cars consume less fuel in traveling the same distance compared to a larger capacity vehicle.

Large fuel guzzlers such as cars with a a larger fuel capacity will consume plenty of fuel and pollute the atmosphere a lot more. This is now frowned upon and considered unnecessary. Damaging the environment is not good and more people are becoming aware of their own contribution to global warming. The smaller their contribution the better it is.
