Cars With the Best Fuel Economy
July 14, 2016Consumer 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, CarsDirect and NADAGuides to see the lowest prices being offered in your local area.
