Complete List  of Cheapest Cars with Best Gas Mileage

12.Kia Niro 2020

Cheapest Cars with Best Gas Mileage

Thanks to its high stance, conservative styling, and a more normal, traditional-acting automatic transmission, the Kia Niro is a genre-splitting hybrid that combines fuel economy with versatility. It uses the same drivetrain as its sibling hybrid — the Hyundai Ioniq — and also suffers from some of that car’s shortcomings. When compared with conventional wagons and small SUVs, the Niro’s 43 mpg overall is impressive.

When compared with conventional wagons and small SUVs, the Niro’s 43 mpg overall is impressive. But that falls 9 mpg shy of the Toyota Prius and Ioniq, current hybrid fuel economy champs, and that’s due to the Niro’s extra weight and less aerodynamic body shape.

Cheapest Cars with Best Gas Mileage

In a class generally known for bland styling and a lack of driving excitement, the Fusion is a breath of fresh air with a stylish, fun to drive demeanor. That doesn’t mean it’s free of certain quirks that can erode one’s enthusiasm. The Fusion looks upscale and stylish, and it handles like a really good European sports sedan.

The Fusion ranks among the best-handling midsized sedans we’ve tested, making it rewarding and fun to drive. And the Hybrid model posted among the best fuel economy we’ve measured in a midsized sedan: 39 mpg overall. A plug-in Energi version is also available.

Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Sedan 2020

Though the diesel Cruze is dying in North America, Chevy isn’t pulling the metaphorical plug on it in other markets just yet. For 2020, both the diesel sedan and hatchback soldier on in the States. The former four-door option is the second most fuel-efficient non-hybrid in the U.S. right now, with 31 miles per gallon in the city, 48 on the highway, and 37 combined. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine produces 137 horsepower (102 kilowatts), and annual fuel costs are an estimated $1,250.

The Toyota Corolla Hatchback boots the iM five-door from the Toyota lineup (though, the Yaris still exists).

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable transmission produces 168 horsepower (125 kilowatts), and costs owners an average of $1,050 in fuel per year.

Mitsubishi Mirage 2020

The Mitsubishi Mirage lives up to its name. While its low sticker price and good fuel economy of 37 mpg overall may conjure up an inviting image of a good, economical runabout, that illusion quickly dissipates into the haze when you drive this tiny, regrettable car. The Mirage comes as a tiny hatchback or sedan, built in Thailand and powered by a small three-cylinder engine.
