Top 12 Cars with the Best MPG

January 29, 2015

Although gas prices seem to be taking a turn for the better, this is probably only temporary and eventually they will back on the rise. Because of that, fuel efficiency is still an important factor for buyers when considering their new car options.

Forbes recently released a list of the 12 most fuel efficient vehicles you can buy right now. Vehicles on the list include the Cadillac ELR, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, Kia Optima Hybrid, and Toyota Prius, some of which come with hefty dealer discounts right now. Below is a look at the full list of 12 along with their current deals.

And for even more savings, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the lowest car prices being offered in your area.
