7. 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid
Maybe you want a little more space than what either the Hyundai or Kia product offers. If you can handle the idea of having a hatchback, Ford’s C-Max Hybrid might be a good choice. The company recently revised the car’s fuel economy rating, but even after the downgrade, it’s rated at 45 mpg in the city, 40 on the highway or 43 overall. It starts just under $26,000, which means its cheaper than the either of the previous cars, even with the extra cargo space.
