9. 2006 Scion xA (four-speed automatic transmission) – 30 MPG Combined

Leading the xB in petroleum frugality is another Scion model, the sexually confused xA. This small car is an amorphous-looking hatchback with androgynous design cues. Can you determine a gender? It somewhat resembles a partially risen dinner roll, but it’s far more lopsided and a lot less golden brown.

Featuring the same 1.5-liter four-banger/four-speed automatic combination found in the xB this car actually delivers slightly better fuel economy. It nets 27 miles to a gallon in urban conditions and up to 35 on the interstate. Dorkiness must trump boxiness when it comes to aerodynamics because combined fuel economy is 30 MPG. At the end of the day Scion’s xA was so good the company doesn’t even offer it any more.

    Nothing I want.

    I’ve always thought the Insight was a cool little car.

    I don’t believe that there ever was a 2012 Mercury Milan…

    Thanks for the heads up! We corrected the date, noting that the last year for Mercury’s Milan was the 2011 model year.

  • Hightech

    I have a 2006 Insight and the lifetime average is 61.8 MPG after 300,000 miles still going strong, (and it’s the CVT automatic)

    Honda CRX HF at 44 combined is #3, #4 would be the Honda Civic VX with 43 combined, #6 should be the Geo Metro at 40 combined.

    Why is there a Grim Reaper in the picture of the Mercury Milan? I get that is was the last year for that car, but it’s still a little creepy if you’re not expecting it….or is it just me?

  • ColumWood

    I think it’s self explanatory “If you’re opposed to the stench of death surrounding this discontinued brand you could always go with the more popular Ford Fusion or Lincoln MKZ; they’re a lot more alive”

    People are coming here not knowing much about cars.. and THAT should be self explanatory. Durr.
