3. 2011 Honda Civic Hybrid – 41 MPG Combined

03-2011-Honda-Civic-Hybrid

Topping Ford’s trio of electrified sedans is Honda’s compact Civic Hybrid. According to the folks at the U.S. EPA this car tops the big four-oh, delivering 40 miles per gallon city and 43 on the highway, which is good enough for a combined rating of 41 MPG. This is an impressive score to be sure.

Making that possible is a miniscule 1.3-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine. With the aid of the company’s “Integrated Motor Assist” technology, IMA for short, the powertrain delivers a total of 110 horses. A sadness-inducing continuously variable transmission (CVT) is also part of the equation, just like the Ford triplets. Hey, nobody said economical motoring was fun…

    Nothing I want.

  • Nathan Kendall

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

  • DollarsnSense

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

  • craigcole

    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?

  • 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”
