Maximizing Fuel Efficiency on a Budget

Would you believe that you could get a vehicle with a 50-mpg combined rating for under $25,000?

If you’re looking for the versatility of a hatchback and you’re on a budget, there’s plenty of vehicles under $25,000 that gets impressive fuel economy. AutoGuide has compiled a list of the top 10 most fuel efficient hatchbacks available in today’s marketplace for under $25,000 and some of the vehicles on the list might surprise you.

While we normally include destination fees in determining the price of a vehicle, we decided to not calculate it in order to determine the vehicles on the list. The reason being, certain cars were on the threshold and adding in the delivery fee pushed it over the $25,000 mark – vehicles we felt deserved to be on the list.

    I like that the honda insight is on the list, even though im not a huge fan. I would replace it with the crz, which is NOT being phased out like the Insight. Granted the crz doesnt quite get the combined rating of the insight, but its close. So is the pricing, and its the ONLY hybrid available with a stick. Its the enthusiast’s hybrid hatchback of choice, albeit without a backseat.

    I thought the CR-Z was being axed too?

    Wondering how the excellent SkyActiv Mazda 3 Hatch didn’t make the list. Well under the price cap and offers better MPG than the Yaris as well as more space and equipment.

    Nope just the insight in the US, but in Europe, the CRZ is getting taken off the market too.

    Very strange not including the destination charge. It’s not like it’s an option. You could also have not included the cost of wheels, but similarly, you can’t buy a car without wheels. You found a way to wedge the Prius into the list, but I find it takes away from the premise of your article.

    You forgot all the plug-ins. iMiev, Spark EV, Smart ED, Nissan Leaf. Some of these are below $25K before tax incentives and all of them are after.

    I really love the way the Prius c looks!

    Yes, but drive one first to see if you like it. You may find it a bit noisy, slow and the ride uncomfortable…

    You have the mpg for the Prius C mixed up.
