7. 2012 Toyota Prius v: 44/40 MPG
The second member of the Prius family, the Prius v ranks 7th with a 44 mpg city and 40 mpg highway rating, besting the CT by just one mpg. And while the Lexus is aimed more at urbanites, the v is targeted at modern families, who need space and functionality (it’s got 67 cu-ft of cargo room), but still want to be green. Like the CT200 and the standard Prius, power comes from Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive with 134-hp.
