4. 2011 Mercury Milan Hybrid – 39 MPG Combined

04-2012-Mercury-Milan-Hybrid

Topping VW’s thrifty Jetta TDI is the even more miserly Mercury Milan! Hybrid versions of this high-quality sedan are most efficient. 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. These cars are all basically the same, but we chose the Mercury just to be different.

Under the hood rests a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It’s augmented by an electric motor and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. Total horsepower delivered by the system is 191.

Where these cars really shine is in the efficiency department. They sticker at a whopping 41 miles per gallon in city driving and up to 36 on the interstate. Combined they ought to deliver 39 MPG. Not bad for a comfortable, reasonably large car.

Correction: Initially we listed this car as a 2012 model when in fact the last year for the Mercury Milan was 2011.

    Nothing I want.

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

  • DollarsnSense

    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)

  • Kate Bennet

    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.

  • Troy

    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?

    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”
