Top Fuel-Efficient Cars Under $20,000

July 18, 2013

Nowadays, it seems like every time you blink gas prices go up. And those high prices are making it very difficult for everyone to afford to travel anywhere, including your daily commute back and forth to work or school.

If you are considering shopping around for a more fuel efficient vehicle, the good news is they are out there and you won't have to necessarily buy a hybrid. BankRate.com recently put together a list of nine vehicles that are fuel efficient on gas only.

And the best part? All nine on the list are less than $20,000. So not only will they not bust your gas budget, they won't break the bank either! If you are looking to add a more fuel efficient vehicle to your garage, make sure to use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best overall deal.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
