Cars With the Best Fuel Economy

July 14, 2016

Consumer Reports recently published a list of vehicles with the best MPG ratings. This is getting more important as oil prices have been steadily increasing lately.

Topping the list this year are electric vehicles such as the BMW i3, Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Ford Focus Electric, and Nissan Leaf. The Toyota Prius tops the list for hybrids - see the full list below.

And if you're shopping for any of these vehicles, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices being offered in your local area.

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.
