Most Fuel Efficient Non-Hybrid Cars

When you're thinking about fuel efficiency, hybrid or electric cars generally come to mind. However, hybrid vehicles are not everyone's cup of tea, plus they're more expensive than their gas counterparts. The good news is there are non-hybrid vehicle options out there that still offer great fuel efficiency.

Forbes recently released a list of 15 non-hybrid vehicles that offer not only wallet-friendly purchase prices, but can also save you money at the pump with fuel efficiencies of at least 40 mpg or better. At the top of the list if the Mitsubishi Mirage with a 37/44 mpg. Other vehicles on the list include the Ford Fiesta, Toyota Corolla, Chevrolet Cruze, and Dodge Dart.

If you're considering purchasing one of these cars, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best prices in your local area.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
