If you’re looking to get the most fuel efficiency bang for your buck, look no further than the Toyota Prius C. Starting at just $19,560, the Prius C has the best value-to-fuel efficiency ratio, achieving 50 MPG. For luxury buyers who want to double as conservationists, the Lexus ES300h takes the cake. It starts at $41,020 and achieves 40 MPG. Toyota is definitively the most represented manufacturer on our list, with five Toyota models and two Lexus models. Second place goes to Ford, with two Ford models and one Lincoln model. In third place is Hyundai, the parent company of Kia, with one model from each brand.
As fuel economy becomes increasingly emphasized in vehicle design, even these impressively efficient vehicles will be improved.
