8. Hyundai Tucson 23/31/26
Recently the Tucson got a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which puts out a fairly low 165 hp. However, the name of the game here is fuel economy and in this area, the Tucson impresses by getting a 23/31 mpg city/highway, which comes to a solid 26 mpg combined. This is all achieved on the $19,145 automatic-equipped Hyundai Tucson GL, which is only available with front wheel drive. This engine and drive-train setup achieves a slightly lower combined fuel economy in the Kia Sorento and Sportage.
