Owning a vehicle comes with a number of expenses – car insurance, repairs, regular maintenance, car payments, and of course the gas. So if you’re looking to cut costs, finding a vehicle that is great when it comes to fuel economy is a good plan. The great news is that there are all kinds of cars with good fuel economy across the different classes of vehicles. Let’s take a look at the top five.

Top five vehicles

Here’s a variety of vehicles in different classes that share one thing in common, they all boast excellent fuel economy.

  • Hyundai Tucson: This is an SUV but it's a little smaller than the full sized options. With that said, you'll take a hit in the cargo space with this vehicle, but then the fuel economy may make up for it. On the GLS two-wheel drive 2014 model you can expect to get 23/mpg city and 29/mpg highway.

  • Honda Civic: This is a great option in the compact car class that will give you 30/mpg city and 39/mpg highway on the 2014 model. Drivers rave how this one performs, but keep in mind it’s rather basic when it comes to features and the interior finishes.

  • Ford Fusion Hybrid: The 2012 model offers an electric/gas drivetrain that delivers 41 mpg in the city. You'll be able to travel more than 700 miles in the city on a single tank of fuel. The car itself is classy looking, yet at the same time it has a sporty finish.

  • Toyota Prius: The Toyota Prius is a hatchback-style vehicle. Although it is capable of seating five, it will be a bit tight in the backseat. This hybrid vehicle boasts incredible fuel economy of 51/mpg city and 48 mpg highway.

  • Nissan Altima Hybrid: Here’s another hybrid option for you to consider. Classed as a mid-size sedan, you'll have a bit more legroom in this vehicle as well as cargo space. It is even roomy enough to act as a family vehicle. This was Nissan's first hybrid vehicle and was available from 2007 to 2011. It may be a bit harder to get your hands on, but if you can you can expect 35/mpg city and 40 mpg highway.

Final thoughts

Choosing a car based on its fuel economy is a simple and effective way to save money on your bills.

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

Breck was awesome! He called ahead of time and asked if he could arrive early. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable with the service he was going to provide and explained things clearly to me. He smiled and made this experience a good one. I will absolutely be booking future appointments with Breck and I will recommend him and Your Mechanic services to others I know. Thank you!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
