GAS Mileage cars
Best GAS Mileage cars...
1. Audi A4
Miles per gallon: 30 mpg
How much will it cost: $37,400+
In its most basic configuration, the Audi A4 returns 30 mpg in a combined cycle, 27 mpg in the city, and 34 mpg on the highway. Achieving those figures requires front-wheel drive, Audi’s time-tested Quattro all-wheel-drive system inevitably lowers efficiency. But even with power going to two wheels, the A4 is one of the most tech-savvy small luxury sedans around.
It comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a digital instrument cluster called Virtual Cockpit in Audi-speak. It replaces the analog gauges with a configurable screen that puts more information right in the driver’s line of sight.
Power comes from a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 188 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. While it’s efficient, it’s certainly no slouch. And, a well-tuned chassis helps the driver make the most of the turbo four’s power. All of this hardware is wrapped in a sharp, elegant design. Like every Audi, the A4 is gifted with an interior that’s both nice to look at and nice to sit in. Digital Trends drove it and walked away impressed by the quality of the materials used inside.
2. FIAT 124 Spider
Miles per gallon: 30 mpg
How much will it cost: $25,440+
The Fiat 124 remains a very compelling sportscar, but the Mazda MX-5 continues to gain ground.”
- Fantastic chassis balance
- Turbo engine offers solid mid-range torque and a nice snarl
- Track-ready right out of the box
Offering up to 164 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque in the performance-tuned Abarth trim, the 124 Spider’s boosted power plant offered a tangible and compelling alternative to the naturally aspirated two-liter under the hood of the Mazda, which delivered 155 hp and 148 lb-ft. of torque. But that was then.
3. Honda Fit
Miles per gallon: 36 mpg
How much will it cost: $16,190+
Despite its small size, the Fit packs big value thanks to practical packaging and a rewarding driving feel.
Good fuel economy doesn’t mean anything if a car can’t work as a practical daily driver. Thankfully, the Honda Fit manages to pack impressive fuel efficiency, a surprising amount of cargo space, and decently fun driving experience into a small package. The EPA rates it at 36 mpg in a combined cycle when it’s ordered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), though note selecting the six-speed stick lowers that figure slightly to 31.
4. Mazda CX-30
Miles per gallon: 31 mpg
How much will it cost: $20,640+
The Mazda CX-3 offers big car practicality without big car compromises.
The advantages of a vehicle like this are demonstrated by the CX-3’s EPA-rated fuel economy of 31 mpg combined (29 mpg city, 34 mpg highway) with front-wheel drive, and 29 mpg combined (27 mpg city, 32 mpg highway) with all-wheel drive. It may be marketed as a crossover, but the CX-3 is still a small car, and its fuel economy figures reflect that well.
- Handsomely sculpted
- Supremely sporty
- Good fuel economy

6. Volvo S60
...Although we like all versions of the Volvo S60, whether the base model or the muscular T6 R-Design, we have to say that the Swedish sedan’s placement on this list solely applies to the new T5 Drive-E model. That sedan is amazingly efficient, offering fuel economy ratings of 25 mpg city/37 mpg hwy, which are virtually unheard of figures in the luxury car world. Despite the impressive gas mileage numbers, the Drive-E is no slouch. It makes use of a turbocharger and a slick 8-speed automatic transmission for a more-than-adequate 240 hp. If that sounds appealing, expect to pay around $35,000 with shipping for a base-level Drive-E model.
- Responsive engines
- Excellent fuel economy
- Well-appointed and stylish interior
- Great front seats
7. Lincoln MKC
...The Lincoln MKC compact crossover somehow manages to offer it all: luxurious equipment, usable practicality, reasonable pricing and strong fuel economy. We’re especially impressed with its fuel economy; base-level versions offer 20 mpg city and nearly 30 mpg hwy, which are nice numbers for an SUV. Even the muscular 285-hp optional engine churns out a whopping 18 mpg city/26 mpg hwy. And then there’s the wide array of standard features, which includes dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless access with push-button start, an 8-in touchscreen with MyLincoln Touch infotainment, heated front seats and 18-in alloy wheels. The best part? The MKC’s base price of around $34,000 with shipping undercuts nearly all rivals in the compact SUV realm.
Sleek styling; quiet, comfortable ride; peppy turbocharged acceleration; uptown interior appointments
8. Lexus ES
...Although the Lexus ES sedan is now based on Toyota’s full-size Avalon, rather than on the midsize Camry, fuel economy ratings have actually improved with the sedan’s transition to its new body style. That’s due to a brand-new hybrid version, which earns the popular Lexus a spot on our list. Dubbed the ES 300h, the hybrid-powered ES offers 200 hp and 40 mpg in combined city and highway driving. It also touts an opulent array of standard features, including keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-in alloy wheels, dual power front seats and automatic xenon headlights. If all that sounds appealing, expect to pay around $41,500 with shipping for the ES.
- Huge back seat
- Standard safety tech
- Surprisingly sharp driving manners
- Powerful engine for the money
- Thrifty hybrid model
9. Infiniti QX60
...Although you might be surprised to see a 3-row SUV on this list, we think the QX60 deserves its spot among other surprisingly efficient luxury cars. One reason is the standard V6, which makes a strong 265 hp and returns an impressive 21 mpg city/27 mpg hwy, which is better than some considerably smaller cars. Even more impressive, however, is the QX60 Hybrid, which offers a 250-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and fuel economy ratings that reach as high as 26 mpg city/28 mpg hwy. Those numbers are strong for any vehicle, but they’re especially excellent in one that can cart around seven people. Prices aren’t so bad, either: The QX60 starts around $43,000 with shipping, while the hybrid powertrain adds only $3,000 to that figure.
- Opulent interior
- Nimble handling for its size
- User-friendly navigation and tech features
- Attractive pricing
10. BMW 528i
...A BMW on a list of cars that get good fuel economy? That might be hard to believe. But the brand’s 528iluxury sedan is the poster child for the fuel-efficient luxury car, thanks to an excellent 240-hp turbocharged4-cylinder that provides strong acceleration and fuel economy figures that reach as high as 23 mpg city/34 mpg hwy. And while the 528i’s base price of around $51,000 may seem steep, the sedan offers an impressive array of standard equipment, including a power sunroof, a 10.2-inch center screen, automatic headlights, 17-in alloy wheels and dual-zone automatic climate control.
- Fun driving manners
- Wide range of powertrains
- Available all-wheel drive
